  1. Currently the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme provides that Abiraterone (Brand name Zytiga) must be taken with prednisone or prednisolone. At its March 2017 meeting the PBAC approved an application that whilst Abiraterone must be taken with a corticosteroid, the corticosteroid does not necessarily have to be prednisone or prednisolone. Patients and their doctors are now able to choose the corticosteroid that they use with Abiraterone. There has been evidence that corticosteroids other than prednisone or prednisolone may have less side effects or greater benefits.
