Drug Information available for: Gefitinib

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PSA response rate at statistical study closure based on the percentage of subjects experiencing PSA normalization or a > 50% reduction in PSA levels compared with study entry sustained for 3 months (i.e. three consecutive measurements)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. TTF (failure defined as a need for additional/alternative therapy due to PSA progression, metastases or AEs)
  2. Duration of PSA response
  3. PFS (progression defined as doubling in PSA levels compared with the PSA level at study entry)
