Metastasis-free survival as a surrogate endpoint in prostate cancer clinical trials

As many readers will have realized, the major regulatory authorities started, some time ago, to accept prostate cancer progression-free survival of differing types as a surrogate for overall survival in the approval of some drugs for the treatment of prostate cancer. … READ MORE …

Are changes in PSA kinetics potentially indicative of metastasis-free survival?
