Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:TKAI) , a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel therapies for prostate cancer and other hormonally driven diseases, today announced the supporting of a CME course discussing AR-V7 in prostate cancer and a poster presentation of the design and rationale for ARMOR3-SV, the planned pivotal Phase 3 trial of galeterone in AR-V7 positive castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) patients, at the 2015 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU) in Orlando, Florida.

  • Data and Perspectives: Clinical Investigators Review Key Publications and Current Cases in Advanced Prostate Cancer (Thursday, February 26, 2015; 7-9pm; Rosen Shingle Creek, Panzacola H, Level 1)
  • Abstract 259: Androgen Receptor Modulation Optimized for Response in Splice Variant (ARMOR3-SV): A Randomized, Open-Label, Multicenter, Controlled Study of Galeterone Compared with Enzalutamide in Men Expressing Androgen Receptor Splice Variant-7 mRNA (AR-V7) Metastatic (M1) Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) (Board #D2, Gatlin Ballroom B; Friday, February 27, 2015; 12:15-1:45pm, 6-7pm)

“We are pleased to present ARMOR3-SV protocol details as well as supportive data that provides the rationale for galeterone as a treatment for the AR-V7 positive patient population,” stated Jodie Morrison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tokai Pharmaceuticals. “We believe the ARMOR3-SV trial will support the use of galeterone in AR-V7 patients who have been shown to have significant unmet need given their poor responses to existing hormonal agents. Final preparations of the AR-V7 assay and trial center start-up are underway and we remain on track to begin enrolling patients in the first half of this year.”
