Xofigo

Xofigo: A Therapy for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Xofigo is used to treat prostate cancer that does not respond to medical or surgical treatments that lower testosterone and has spread to the bone with symptoms, but not to other parts of the body. More than 15,000 men have received treatment with Xofigo.

When prostate cancer goes to the bone, so does Xofigo. Because the radium within Xofigo is very similar to calcium, it moves quickly to areas of rapid bone growth, such as bone metastases.

Once at the metastases, Xofigo gives off a strong energy that travels a short distance. The energy is deadly to the cancer cells in the bones but does limited damage to nearby healthy cells.

Xofigo can be absorbed by other organs, primarily the bone marrow and digestive system, which may result in side effects in those healthy tissues.

Xofigo helps extend life by more than 30% in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC)

Results from a clinical trial with Xofigo plus best standard of care – or the drug men were already taking – showed that Xofigo-treated patients lived significantly longer (14.9 months in Xofigo-treated men versus 11.3 months in placebo-treated men in an updated analysis). Xofigo was studied in a clinical trial with 921 men with mCRPC. In addition to the other medication they were taking, some of the men in the study were given Xofigo. Others were given an injection that did not contain an active drug.

Important Safety Information

Xofigo is not indicated for women. Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should not receive Xofigo and should practice safe sex, such as having their partner wear a condom and using effective birth control, as Xofigo can harm unborn babies. People who are handling fluids such as urine, feces, or vomit of a man taking Xofigo should wear gloves and wash their hands as precaution.
