Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Degarelix 240/80 mg
The degarelix doses were administered into the abdominal wall every 28 days. A starting dose of 240 mg (40 mg/mL) degarelix was administered on Day 0 as two 3 mL subcutaneous (s.c.) injections. The subsequent maintenace of 80 mg (20 mg/mL) degarelix were administered as single 4 mL s.c. injections at 28 day intervals from day 28 to day 168.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cumulative Probability of Testosterone at Castrate Level (≤0.5 ng/mL) From Day 28 to Day 196 [ Time Frame: Day 28 to Day 196 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Patients With Testosterone Level ≤0.5 ng/mL at Day 3 [ Time Frame: At day 3 ]
  2. Percentage Change in Prostate-specific Antigen (PSA) From Baseline to Day 28 [ Time Frame: To Day 28 ]
  3. Cumulative Probability of Testosterone at Castrate Level (≤0.5 ng/mL)From Day 56 to Day 196 [ Time Frame: Day 56 to Day 196 ]
  4. Cumulative Probability of no PSA Failure From Day 28 to Day 196 [ Time Frame: To Day 196 ]
    PSA failure was defined as two consecutive increases of 50%, and at least 5 ng/mL, compared to nadir.

  5. Number of Participants With Markedly Abnormal Values in Safety Laboratory Variables [ Time Frame: To Day 196 ]
    The figures present the number of participants who had markedly abnormal levels of safety laboratory variables. Only the laboratory variables that had at least one percentage of participants in either group with abnormal value are presented, more variables were included in the study.

  6. Number of Participants With Markedly Abnormal Values in Vital Signs and Body Weight [ Time Frame: To Day 196 ]
    This outcome measure included incidence of markedly abnormal changes in blood pressure (systolic and diastolic), pulse, and body weight. The table presents the number of participants with normal baseline and at least one post-baseline markedly abnormal value.
