ASCO 2019 kicks off this year with a strong focus on prostate cancer, as several pharma companies are attempting to find ways to treat the disease earlier, or find better ways to prevent it spreading.

Key readouts to look for on Friday 31st May:

  • Data from Johnson & Johnson’s Erleada (apalutamide) in patients with metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC). This will be the first time that we get the chance to see detailed data from the phase 3 TITAN study.
  • AstraZeneca and Merck & Co have data from the phase 2 TOPARB-B trial, testing their PARP inhibitor Lynparza (olaparib) for metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer.
  • AstraZeneca and Merck & Co are also due to present data from a phase 3 study testing Lynparza in pancreatic cancer, in patients with an inherited BRCA gene mutation.
