Transcript

TRANSCRIPT – DR. TIM RICHARDSON DISCUSSES SURVIVAL AND PROVENGE

Dr. Tim: So, if you take everyone in the trial, the difference between patients that receive Provenge and those that received Placebo was about a four-month overall survival advantage. But if you specifically look at those patients that were much earlier in their disease process with the PSA of less than 22.1, the overall survival advantage was 13 months. Drastically different.
