AstraZeneca's Drug Will Become the New Clinical Gold Standard by 2012 for the Treatment of Metastatic Hormone-Refractory Prostate Cancer
Date:1/27/2009

Differences in Prescribing Patterns Were Observed Between U.S. and European Oncologists, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that AstraZeneca's zibotentan will become Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold standard by 2012 and through 2017 for the treatment of metastatic hormone-refractory prostrate cancer due to its competitive advantages in overall efficacy, safety and tolerability and delivery measures over the current gold standard, Sanofi-Aventis' Taxotere. Zibotentan also has a significant advantage in terms of delivery over all current and emerging therapies because it is likely to be used as an oral monotherapy.

"Interviewed key opinion leaders' optimism for zibotentan's Phase II survival data combined with our survey results make zibotentan the most likely agent to supplant Sanofi-Aventis' Taxotere as our gold standard treatment for metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer patients," stated Natalia Reoutova, M.Sc., analyst at Decision Resources.

The new report entitled Metastatic Hormone-Refractory Prostate Cancer: Physicians Optimistic About Targeted Therapies also finds that significant differences were observed between U.S. and European oncologists' prescribing patterns, which highlight European oncologists' greater price sensitivity compared to their U.S. counterparts.
