Trial of Docetaxel Prednisone, and Pazopanib Combo in Patients With mCRPC

Key clinical point: Docetaxel Prednisone, and Pazopanib combo was tolerable at full doses and showed promising efficacy in relatively poor risk patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

Major finding: Objective response rate was 31%; median PFS was 14.1 months (95% confidence interval [CI]: 7.1 and 22.2); and overall survival was 18.6 months (95% CI: 11.8 and 22.2).

Study details: 36 men with mCRPC were treated over 6 dose levels in a 2-site phase 1b Department of Defense Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Consortium trial of docetaxel, prednisone, and pazopanib, once daily and ongoing androgen deprivation therapy and prophylactic pegfilgrastim.
