A Phase III Randomized Trial Comparing Androgen Deprivation Therapy + TAK-700 With Androgen Deprivation Therapy + Bicalutamide in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Metastatic Hormone Sensitive Prostate Cancer
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects (good and/or bad) there are to adding the new investigational drug TAK-700 (also called orteronel) to standard hormone therapy used to treat prostate cancer as compared to the standard of hormone therapy alone. Participants in this study have prostate cancer that has spread and are either beginning hormone therapy for the first time or have been on hormone therapy for less than 30 days. TAK-700 is a pill that works by reducing the levels of testosterone and other male hormones that help prostate cancer grow. TAK-700 acts on the adrenal glands and inside the prostate tumors and slows the amount of male hormones being produced. By lowering the amount of male hormones in the body, TAK-700 is expected to control the growth of prostate cancer.
