Takeda pulls the plug on orteronel for prostate cancer

  • Citing a failure to demonstrate a statistically significant improvement in overall survival (OS), Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd (TKPYY) terminates its orteronel development program for prostate cancer. The firm's decision is not unexpected considering its disclosure in 2013 that an interim analysis of the results of the Phase 3 ELM-PC5 clinical trial showed that orteronel would be unlikely to meet its primary endpoint of OS compared to placebo.
