Marketed Drugs

Xtandi (Enzalutamide): Astellas Pharma/Pfizer

It is an orally bioavailable, organic, non-steroidal small molecule targeting the androgen receptor (AR) with potential antineoplastic activity. It is indicated for the treatment of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), and metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC). Xtandi approved initially in August 2012. It was approved by the US FDA for the treatment of patients with mCRPC who have previously received docetaxel. In December 2019, Pfizer and Astellas Pharma announced that the US FDA has approved a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Xtandi for the treatment of patients with mCSPC.

Erleada (apalutamide): Janssen Pharmaceutical

Janssen Pharmaceutical’s product Erleada (apalutamide) is a next-generation oral androgen receptor (AR) inhibitor that blocks the androgen signaling pathway in prostate cancer cells. It is indicated for the treatment of patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) and for the treatment of patients with metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC). It is taken orally, once daily, with or without food. Erleada inhibits the growth of cancer cells in three ways: by preventing the binding of androgen to the AR; by stopping the AR from entering the cancer cells; and by preventing the AR from binding to the DNA of the cancer cell. In January 2020, the European Commission has approved apalutamide (Erleada) for use in combination with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for the treatment of adult men with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. The EC approval is based on data from the phase III TITAN study, which assessed the addition of apalutamide to ADT in a broad range of patients with mHSPC, regardless of disease volume, prior treatment with docetaxel or staging at initial diagnosis.

Nubeqa (Darolutamide/ODM-201): Bayer HealthCare/Orion Corporation

Bayer HealthCare/Orion Corporation’s product Nubeqa (darolutamide) is an androgen receptor inhibitor (ARi) with a distinct chemical structure that competitively inhibits androgen binding, AR nuclear translocation, and AR-mediated transcription. Nubeqa is approved for the treatment of patients with nmCRPC. In January 2020, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) granted marketing authorization to Nubeqa for the treatment of men with nmCRPC. Nubeqa (darolutamide) is also being investigated for mHSPC/mCSPC. In ARASENS trial, approximately 1,300 subjects enrolled with mHSPC. The patients will be randomized (1:1 ratio) to receive 600 mg (2 300 mg tablets) of Darolutamide (ODM-201)/placebo twice daily with food, equivalent to a total daily dose of 1,200 mg, in addition to standard ADT and docetaxel. Subjects will be stratified at randomization for the extent of disease and for Alkaline Phosphatase levels.

Emerging Drugs

Lynparza (olaparib): AstraZeneca/Merck Sharp & Dohme

Lynparza (olaparib) is first and best-in-class oral poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, and the first targeted treatment to block DDR in tumours harbouring a deficiency in homologous recombination repair (HRR), such as mutations in BRCA1 and/or BRCA2. AstraZeneca have global strategic oncology collaboration with Merck to co-develop and co-commercialize Lynparza. Recently in January 2020, the US FDA accepted the supplemental New Drug Application for Lynparza and granted Priority Review in the US for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer and deleterious or suspected deleterious germline or somatic homologous recombination repair (HRR) gene mutations, which have progressed following prior treatment with a new hormonal agent. A Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date is set for the second quarter of 2020. The priority review is based on the results from the Phase III PROfound trial, which were presented during the Presidential Symposium at the 2019 European Society of Medical Oncology congress.

Talzoparib: Pfizer/Astellas Pharma

Talzoparib (Pfizer/Astellas Pharma) is an orally PARP inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity, currently under evaluation in Phase III clinical stage. It selectively binds to PARP and prevents PARP-mediated DNA repair of single strand DNA breaks via the base-excision repair pathway. A phase III study (NCT03395197; TALAPRO-2) was initiated to compare rPFS in men with mCRPC treated with Talazoparib plus enzalutamide vs. enzalutamide after confirmation of the starting dose of Talazoparib in combination with enzalutamide (Xtandi).

Rubraca (Rucaparib): Clovis Oncology

Clovis Oncology is investigating one of their lead candidates named Rubraca (Rucaparib) for various cancer indications. It is an oral, small-molecule inhibitor of PARP1, PARP2 and PARP3 being developed in Prostate Cancer, and Ovarian Cancer as well as several additional solid tumor indications. It is worth mentioning that, the US Food and Drug Administration has accepted the company’s supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Rubraca and granted priority review status to the application with a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date of May 15, 2020.

Keytruda: Merck Sharp & Dohme

Merck Sharp & Dohme’s immunotherapy Keytruda, also known as pembrolizumab, is a PD-1 blocking antibody. It is mainly used for cancers that are advanced, have spread to other parts of the body or are not responding to other treatments. This is currently being investigated in Phase III clinical trials in combination with Enzalutamide for the treatment of patients affected by mHSPC. Moreover, several other trials are also ongoing for the treatment of patients affected with mCRPC.

Ipatasertib (RG7440): Hoffmann-La Roche

Hoffmann-La Roche investigating Ipatasertib (RG7440) for Prostate Cancer. It is a small molecule Pan-Akt inhibitor which is under investigation by Roche in Phase III clinical trial. The PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway regulates cell growth and survival.

ProstAtak: Advantagene

Advantagene is developing ProstAtak for the treatment of patients suffering from prostate cancer. ProstAtak jump-starts the body’s own immune system to detect and destroy recurring cancer cells. The treatment is done together with standard radiation therapy. Last year, Candel Therapeutics (Advantagene) announced that it has completed the enrollment of the “ULYSSES” trial, a Phase II study of ProstAtak for prostate cancer patients choosing Active Surveillance (PrTK04- NCT02768363). However, enrollment is still open for prostate cancer patients choosing radiation therapy as their primary treatment (PrTK03- NCT01436968).

177Lu-PSMA-617: Novartis

177Lu-PSMA-617 is an investigational radioligand therapy (RLT) in development for mCRPC by Novartis. Currently this drug is in a Phase III trial (VISION) for the treatment of patients with progressive PSMA-positive mCRPC.
