The ongoing trial is enrolling patients at 62 locations in the United States and worldwide.

Neeraj Agarwal, MD, discusses the rationale for the ongoing phase 3 randomized, open-label, CONTACT-02 study (NCT04446117) of the multikinase inhibitor cabozantinib (Cabometyx) plus the PD-L1 inhibitor atezolizumab (Tecentriq) versus second novel hormone therapy (NHT; abiraterone acetate [Zytiga] or enzalutamide [Xtandi], etc) in patients with metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who previously received 1 NHT to treat metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer, non-metastatic CRPC, or mCRPC.

Primary outcomes measures are overall survival and progression-free survival, with objective response rate as a secondary outcome measure. The target enrollment is 580 patients, and there are 62 study locations for the trial in the United States and worldwide.

Agarwal is a professor of Medicine, physician and investigator at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah. He directs the Genitourinary Oncology Program and the Center of Investigational Therapeutics, and co-leads the Experimental Therapeutic Program.
