  • This study is a retrospective analysis aiming to characterize the activity of abiraterone following enzalutamide and vice versa
  • Data sets like these are becoming increasingly important and speak to potential resistance that evolves when a patient receives one drug or the other for mCRPC
  • This study, as well as others, have shown that receiving one drug may compromise the efficacy of the second
