NORTHBROOK, Ill. and SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Astellas Pharma US, Inc. (TSE: 4503) and Medivation, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDVN) today announced results of a national survey of men with advanced prostate cancer and caregivers of men with advanced prostate cancer.[i] Results showed that while patients who participated in the survey are generally optimistic, a good number may feel isolated in coping with their disease.

However, caregiver respondents are more concerned about helping their loved one cope with the physical and emotional effects of advanced disease (83 percent) than they are about their own physical or emotional health (58 percent).

Astellas Pharma US, Inc. and Medivation, Inc. commissioned the Advanced Prostate Cancer Patient and Caregiver Burden of Illness Survey through Harris Interactive, and sponsored four leading cancer advocacy and education organizations to collaborate on the initiative: The Association of Oncology Social Work (AOSW), CancerCare, Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN), and Us TOO Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network.
