Prostate cancer patients' charity Tackle has welcomed health watchdog Nice's draft approval of making a life-extending drug available on the NHS.
A spokesman for the charity said:
This offers a vital lifeline to thousands of men facing death sentences due to the very limited options for treatment if chemotherapy has failed.
Enzalutamide has shown great success treating men with advanced prostate cancer beyond the stage at which conventional hormone treatment or docetaxel chemotherapy is effective.
