In 2011, the FDA approved abiraterone acetate, a drug developed in partnership with Lindsay Rosenwald, to treat metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer after the use of antimitotic chemotherapy medications. In 2012, abiraterone acetate’s, brand name Zytiga, scope of uses was expanded for administration to patients in the pre-chemotherapy stage of treatment. Cougar Biotechnology, the company established by Lindsay Rosenwald to research and develop this drug, was purchased in 2009 for nearly $1 billion by Johnson & Johnson prior to entering Phase III clinical trials.
