An Efficacy and Safety Study of JNJ-56021927 (Apalutamide) in High-risk Prostate Cancer Subjects Receiving Primary Radiation Therapy: ATLAS
a study on Prostate Cancer
The purpose of this study is to determine if apalutamide plus gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist in participants with high-risk, localized or locally advanced prostate cancer receiving primary radiation therapy results in an improvement of metastasis-free survival.
ATLAS: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Phase 3 Study of JNJ-56021927 in Subjects With High-risk, Localized or Locally Advanced Prostate Cancer Receiving Treatment With Primary Radiation Therapy
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study of apalutamide plus GnRH agonist compared with GnRH agonist among participants with high-risk, localized or locally advanced prostate cancer receiving primary radiation therapy (RT). The study will include a Screening Phase, Treatment Phase, a Posttreatment Phase, and a Long-term Follow-up Phase. Participants will either receive either apalutamide (experimental) or bicalutamide 50 milligram (mg) capsule plus placebo as control group. Safety will be monitored throughout the study.

You CAN'T join if...
- Presence of distant metastasis, (clinical stage M1). Isolated pelvic nodal disease below the iliac bifurcation (clinical stage N1) is not an exclusion. Diagnosis of distant metastasis (clinical M stage; M0 versus M1a, M1b, M1c) and pelvic nodal disease (clinical N stage; N1 versus N0) will be assessed by central radiological review. Patients are considered eligible only if the central radiological review confirms clinical stage M0.
- Prior treatment with gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue or anti-androgen or both for >3 months prior to randomization
- Bilateral orchiectomy
- History of pelvic radiation

- History of seizure or any condition that may predispose to seizure (including, but not limited to prior stroke, transient ischemic attack or loss of consciousness <= 1 year prior to randomization; brain arteriovenous malformation; or intracranial masses such as schwannomas and meningiomas that are causing edema or mass effect)
- Prior treatment with enzalutamide, abiraterone acetate, orteronel, galeterone,ketoconazole, aminoglutethimide, estrogens, megestrol acetate, and progestational agents (including cyproterone acetate) for prostate cancer
- Prior treatment with radiopharmaceutical agents (e.g., strontium-89) or immunotherapy(e.g., sipuleucel-T) for prostate cancer
- Prior treatment with systemic glucocorticoids ≤4 weeks prior to randomization or is expected to require long-term use of corticosteroids during the study
- Use of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (e.g., dutasteride, finasteride) <=4 weeks prior to randomization
- Use of any investigational agent <=4 weeks prior to randomization
- Current chronic use of opioid analgesics for >=3 weeks for oral or >7 days for non-oral formulations
- Major surgery <=4 weeks prior to randomization
- Current or prior treatment with anti-epileptic medications for the treatment of seizures
