Pfizer Inc. said the Phase 3 trial studying its drug Talzenna as a treatment for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer reached its primary endpoint, with significant improvement shown in radiographic progression-free survival.

The trial compared the use of Talzenna and Xtandi, another of Pfizer's prostate cancer medications, with the use of a placebo and Xtandi.

Pfizer said Tuesday that results showed a trend toward improved overall survival, which was a key secondary endpoint, though the company noted that the data were not yet mature at the time of analysis. Other secondary endpoints are still being analyzed.

Detailed results will be submitted for presentation at a near-term medical congress, Pfizer said.
