Abstract #953: Sipuleucel-T in African Americans: A Subgroup Analysis of Three Phase 3 Trials of Sipuleucel-T in Metastatic Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer

This exploratory analysis evaluated the survival benefit associated with PROVENGE in the African American men who participated in the three PROVENGE Phase 3 studies, including the IMPACT trial. Among 737 patients with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer, 488 were randomized to receive PROVENGE (African American, 33; Caucasian, 437; other races, 18) and 249 were randomized to the control arm (African American, 10; Caucasian, 229; other races, 10). Cox proportional hazards regression analysis was used to assess the treatment effect on overall survival in all randomized patients and the African American subpopulation.
