Robotic Prostatectomy Expert Dr. David Samadi, MD Discusses Prostate Cancer Treatment Drug Abiraterone
Date:10/13/2010

NEW YORK, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Following recent FDA approvals for prostate cancer treatment medications from Dendreon and Sanofi-Aventis, a new study shows that the lives of men with advanced prostate cancer were prolonged almost four months on Abiraterone, a new medication from Johnson & Johnson. The drug, which could reach the market in 2011, is positive prostate cancer treatment news with the potential to change clinical practice by providing a new treatment option for aggressive prostate cancer. Dr. David Samadi, a robotic surgery expert who is the Vice Chairman, Department of Urology, and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, described the study, which was presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) congress, "As yet another in a series of successful scientific steps towards fighting prostate cancer, a common, and sometimes deadly enemy."

The study followed over 1,000 men with aggressive prostate cancer and poor prognoses, who had only been given months left to live. In this group, 797 were prescribed abiraterone acetate as well as prednisone, a steroid, while the rest were given prednisone and a placebo treatment for prostate cancer. Abiraterone, discovered by Britain's Institute of Cancer Research, blocks the production of hormones that stimulate prostate cancer tumors. Abiraterone's side effects include fluid retention and hypokalemia (low levels of potassium in the blood).
