BDR Pharma today launched the first generic apalutamide (brand name Apatide) in India to treat both metastatic castration sensitive prostrate cancer as well as non-metastatic castration-resistant prostrate cancer. The product will be available across India and shall be of 60 mg strength and available in two packs – 60 tablets and 120 tablets.
According to a company statement, Apalutamide, in combination with anti-androgen therapy, will improve chances for survival within metastatic castration sensitive prostrate cancer patients. Apalutamide plus Androgen-Deprivation Therapy (ADT) arm shows a significant decrease in the risk of disease progression and reduces risk of mortality by 35 per cent amongst non-metastatic castration-resistant prostrate cancer. The drug promises quality of life as measured by the complete functional assessment of cancer therapy-prostate.
BDR’s journey for the treatment of prostate cancer started with Abiratarone Acetate, then Leuprolide Acetate followed by Enzalutamide, and, then Degarelix and Triptorelin. Apalutamide will play a role in significantly improving the Overall Survival (OS) and radiographic progression-free survival in patients. As per clinical data during Spartan trial for patients in non-metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer, Apalutamide, in combination with anti-androgen therapy, improved median metastatis – free survival by two years. The median progression-free survival for Apalutamide plus ADT arm was 40.5 months v/s 14.7 months for the placebo arm plus ADT, representing a significant decrease in the risk of disease progression or death by 71 per cent, the statement said.
