Prostate cancer is the most common male urinary tumor and sixth most common male malignant tumor in China. Improved screening tools will result in a significant increase in the diagnosed incidence of prostate cancer throughout China. The drug-treatment rate has increased over the last few years owing to strong uptake of novel premium-priced therapies and these drugs' inclusion in the NRDL in the 2017 update, especially abiraterone (Janssen’s Zytga). Most recent drug approvals in China (e.g., enzalutamide [Astella’s Xtandi], apalutamide [Janssen’s Erleada], degarelix [Ferring Pharma’s Firmagon] underscore manufacturers' focus on the prostate cancer therapy market in China. Multilabel expansions of marketed drugs to new patient populations are expected.
