Executive Summary

J&J subsidiary Janssen's Erleada (apalutamide) is the first therapy approved for non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC). The US FDA decision came about two months early, but the drug – priced at $10,920 per month, or $131,040 annually – may soon face competition.
