687 Background: ENZA, a potent androgen receptor inhibitor, has demonstrated benefit in men with metastatic and nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Efficacy of ENZA with ADT in men with mHSPC is unknown. Methods: ARCHES is a multinational, double-blind, phase 3 study (NCT02677896). Patients (pts) with mHSPC were randomized 1:1 to ENZA (160 mg/day) + ADT or PBO + ADT, stratified by disease volume (CHAARTED criteria) and prior docetaxel therapy. Primary endpoint was radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) assessed centrally or death within 24 weeks of treatment discontinuation. Secondary endpoints included time to prostate-specific antigen (PSA) progression, PSA a..
