Both Xofigo (Radium-223) and Zytiga (Abiraterone Acetate) have been shown in separate trials to both prolong life and give a higher quality of life. The trial will be available to men in a number of countries, including Australia. Specific sites are not yet listed in ClinicalTrials.gov (as of 9 April 2014).
