Background/Aim: A clinical trial demonstrated that treatment with oral multikinase regorafenib improved overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), and disease control [García-Alfonso et al.: J Clin Transl Oncol 2016;18:1072-1081; Bertocchi et al.: J Chemother 2017;29:102-105]. In this study, we aimed to evaluate its effectiveness in Italian patients with hormone-refractory metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) progressing after chemotherapy with docetaxel plus prednisone. Materials and Methods: 60 patients were enrolled. OS has been assessed as the primary endpoint while PFS, quality of life, safety, and response rate represented secondary endpoints. Results: A modest tolerability was observed in our group showing a manageable toxicity profile and a modest objective response rate. It was associated with stable disease. A significant correlation between quality of life and OS was also noticed. Conclusions: Regorafenib has been proven to be an effective and well-tolerated therapeutic option in patients with mCRPC progressing after docetaxel plus prednisone treatment.

Abstract

Background/Aim: A clinical trial demonstrated that treatment with oral multikinase regorafenib improved overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), and disease control [García-Alfonso et al.: J Clin Transl Oncol 2016;18:1072-1081; Bertocchi et al.: J Chemother 2017;29:102-105]. In this study, we aimed to evaluate its effectiveness in Italian patients with hormone-refractory metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) progressing after chemotherapy with docetaxel plus prednisone. Materials and Methods: 60 patients were enrolled. OS has been assessed as the primary endpoint while PFS, quality of life, safety, and response rate represented secondary endpoints. Results: A modest tolerability was observed in our group showing a manageable toxicity profile and a modest objective response rate. It was associated with stable disease. A significant correlation between quality of life and OS was also noticed. Conclusions: Regorafenib has been proven to be an effective and well-tolerated therapeutic option in patients with mCRPC progressing after docetaxel plus prednisone treatment.
