PROVENGE is a personalized immunotherapy made from your cells and for your prostate cancer.
National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) recommends sipuleucel-T (PROVENGE) as a first-line treatment option for certain men with advanced prostate cancer (mCRPC).
Your immune system is your body’s natural defense. PROVENGE is designed to work with your immune system to seek out and attack your prostate cancer cells. PROVENGE is made from your own cells. By activating immune cells already in your body, PROVENGE personalizes the fight against your prostate cancer.
PROVENGE is clinically proven to help extend life in certain men with advanced prostate cancer.
The pivotal study showed that more men treated with PROVENGE were alive than men not treated with PROVENGE.
PROVENGE prolonged life for men with both low and high prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels. There may be greater survival benefits when men with advanced prostate cancer start PROVENGE while PSA levels are lower.b

Talk to your urologist or oncologist to find out if PROVENGE is right for you
When prostate cancer is diagnosed early, most men are treated with surgery or radiation. If their cancer returns, some men are treated with hormone therapy, also known as androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). This helps to shrink the cancer or make it grow more slowly. However, hormone therapy is not a cure, and additional treatment may be necessary.
PROVENGE is the first and only approved, personalized immunotherapy for mCRPC.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®), a not-for-profit alliance of 27 leading cancer centers devoted to patient care, research, and education, is dedicated to improving the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of cancer care so that patients can live better lives. The NCCN recommends that sipuleucel-T (PROVENGE) be considered as a first-line treatment option in certain men with mCRPC.
In addition, while patients with varying levels of PSA may benefit from PROVENGE, a clinical study showed that patients with a lower PSA may benefit the most.a After your PROVENGE treatment, other options such as radiotherapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy may still be available to you.
If you have prostate cancer that has not yet spread to other parts of your body, but is no longer responding to hormone therapy, or if you have prostate cancer that has spread but is still responding to hormone therapy, ask your doctor why regular monitoring is important.
aAnalysis was exploratory and individual results may vary.
The NCCN recommends sipuleucel-T (PROVENGE) may be used before or after certain other therapies for certain men with advanced prostate cancer (mCRPC). Even if you already received treatment for advanced prostate cancer, you may benefit from PROVENGE.
