Abstract

Ever since the critical role of androgen deprivation therapy for the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer was established, several trials aimed to show an improved outcome with the early introduction of chemotherapy in metastatic disease. Until recently, all these trials—including the GETUG-AFU 15 trial—failed to confirm an improvement in survival. The recently published CHAARTED and STAMPEDE trials showed a striking benefit and changed the standard of care for patients with newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer. We summarize the evidence that emerged from these trials that support the use of combined chemohormonal therapy in metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer.
