Brief Summary:

Taxotere is the current standard first-line chemotherapy for mCRPC and may be used as second-line therapy in good responders in first-line (Taxotere rechallenge). Jevtana has demonstrated a survival benefit versus mitoxantrone in patients progressing during or after Taxotere and is now the standard second-line chemotherapy. Taxotere and Jevtana have different toxicity profiles.

Many patients who are receiving Jevtana for second-line treatment indicate they prefer this agent over Taxotere with regards to the general tolerance (namely peripheral neuropathy, nail changes, asthenia). This was not expected since Jevtana in post-Taxotere setting was associated with more grade 3-4 adverse events such as febrile neutropenia and diarrhea than Taxotere in first-line setting.

The study design of CABA-DOC is similar to that of the PISCES trial which evaluated the patient preference between two standard treatments for first-line metastatic kidney cancer. Despite similar PFS improvements over placebo in phase III trials, results clearly showed that patients preferred pazopanib over sunitinib.

A randomized phase III study is currently comparing the efficacy of Taxotere and Jevtana in first-line setting with overall survival as a primary end-point. Assessing patient preference between Jevtana and Taxotere would contribute to further identify differences between these two taxanes and clarify which one of these two taxanes should be used for second-line chemotherapy and perhaps for first-line chemotherapy in the future.

Assessing patient preference between the two taxanes might be less biased in the first-line setting where patients have no previous experience with a taxane.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Arm Do/Ca : Taxotere 75mg/m2/3w x 4 cycles, followed by Jevtana 25mg/m2/3w x 4 cycles
Drug: Taxotere
Drug: Jevtana
Arm Ca/Do : Jevtana 25mg/m2/3w x 4 cycles, followed by Taxotere 75mg/m2/3w x 4 cycles
Drug: Taxotere
Drug: Jevtana

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patient preference [ Time Frame: Assessed up 21 weeks after randomization ]

    Patient preference (Taxotere versus Jevtana) assessed by a single question after completion of the second period of chemotherapy.

    Primary outcome measure will be assessed in the intent-to-treat population as defined by all patients having completed the first 4 cycles without progression and having received at least 1 cycle of the second treatment period. Patients having progressed during the first period will discontinue the trial.

  • History of severe hypersensitivity reaction (grade ≥3) to polysorbate 80 containing drugs ;
  • Uncontrolled severe illness or medical condition (including uncontrolled diabetes mellitus), active infection including HIV infection, active Hepatitis B or C infection that would preclude participation in the trial ;
  • Concurrent or planned treatment with strong inhibitors or strong inducers of cytochrome P450 3A4/5 (a one week wash-out period is necessary for patients who are already on these treatments) ;
