At One Month Post-Launch, Nearly One-Quarter of Surveyed U.S. Medical Oncologists Have Prescribed Xofigo to Their Prostate Cancer Patients
Date:9/16/2013

EXTON, Pa., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for specialized biopharmaceutical issues, finds that, at one month post-launch of Algeta/Bayer HealthCare's Xofigo in the United States, approximately one quarter of surveyed U.S. medical oncologists indicated that they have prescribed Xofigo. According to the first wave of the LaunchTrends® Xofigo report series, nearly half of current non-prescribers stated that they would prescribe Xofigo in the next four to six months. Notably, the majority of current non-prescribers indicated that they would prescribe Xofigo to both their docetaxel-naive and docetaxel-pretreated metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients.

The report also finds that over half of surveyed medical oncologists reported high favorability toward Xofigo, and a majority of respondents indicated a high level of interest in Xofigo. For docetaxel-naive mCRPC, the highest proportion of surveyed medical oncologists indicated that the bone-targeted mechanism of action of Xofigo and its safety profile are among the main advantages of the agent. For docetaxel-pretreated mCRPC, the main perceived advantages of Xofigo over Johnson & Johnson/Janssen Biotech/Janssen-Cilag's Zytiga and Medivation/Astellas Pharma's Xtandi lie in Xofigo's limited and fixed treatment duration and the fact that it is an efficacious bone-targeted agent, according to surveyed medical oncologists.

"Surveyed medical oncologists cited the need to refer patients to a licensed nuclear medicine facility as one of the main disadvantages of Xofigo compared to other agents used to treat docetaxel-naive and docetaxel-pretreated mCRPC," said Decision Resources Group Senior
