Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PSA response rate at statistical study closure based on the percentage of subjects experiencing PSA normalization or a > 50% reduction in PSA levels compared with study entry sustained for 3 months (i.e. three consecutive measurements)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • TTF (failure defined as a need for additional/alternative therapy due to PSA progression, metastases or AEs)
  • Duration of PSA response
  • PFS (progression defined as doubling in PSA levels compared with the PSA level at study entry)
