Summary

After two years, survival was 82% among those on Erleada and 74% among those who weren’t.Men now have a choice of four drugs that give similar benefits, and no studies yet have compared them against each other, said Dr. Ethan Basch, a prostate specialist at the University of North Carolina’s Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center who has no financial ties to any drugmakers.Cost and side effects may help patients decide, he said.
