What is Involved?

If you choose to join this study, you will:

Have a screening period that includes a physical exam, collection of demographic data, imaging scans, and blood draws.

Once screening is complete, you will:
- Get the study drugs apalutamide, abiraterone acetate, and prednisone over a period of 24 months
- Be asked to return to the clinic at least every four weeks for the first three months, and every three months thereafter
- At these visits, you will get a medical exam, answer questions about any medications or side effects, have routine blood tests, and will also have imaging scans about every 3 months.

After you finish all the study visits and have finished the study treatment, you will be contacted every 6 months to see how you are doing and to see what other cancer therapies you may be on.
