Description of selected adverse reactions: Fatigue: Fatigue/asthenic conditions were reported in 15.8% of patients treated with darolutamide and in 11.4% of patients treated with placebo. Events with worst grade of 3 were reported in 0.6% of patients treated with darolutamide and in 1.1% of patients treated with placebo. Fatigue (not including asthenia, lethargy or malaise) occurred in the majority of patients (12.1% of patients treated with darolutamide and 8.7% of patients treated with placebo).
Fractures: Fractures occurred in 4.2% of patients treated with darolutamide and in 3.6% of patients treated with placebo.

The median time to nadir was 256 days. The laboratory tests abnormalities manifested predominantly as grade 1 or 2 intensity. Neutrophil count decreased of grade 3 and 4 was reported in 3.5% and 0.5% of patients, respectively. Only one patient permanently discontinued darolutamide due to neutropenia. Neutropenia was either transient or reversible (88% of patients) and were not associated with any clinically relevant signs or symptoms.

The episodes were predominantly of grade 1 or 2 intensity, not associated with any clinically relevant signs or symptoms, and reversible after darolutamide was discontinued. Bilirubin increased of grade 3 was reported in 0.1% of patients treated with darolutamide and in 0% of patients treated with placebo. In the darolutamide arm, the mean time to first onset of increased bilirubin was 153 days, and the mean duration of the first episode was 182 days. No patients were discontinued from treatment due to increase in bilirubin.
AST increased: AST increased was reported as a laboratory abnormality in 22.5% of patients treated with darolutamide and in 13.6% of patients treated with placebo. The episodes were predominantly of grade 1 or 2 intensity, not associated with any clinically relevant signs or symptoms, and reversible after darolutamide was discontinued. AST increased of grade 3 was reported in 0.5% of patients treated with darolutamide and in 0.2% of patients treated with placebo. In the darolutamide arm, the mean time to first onset of increased AST was 258 days, and the mean duration of the first episode was 118 days. No patients were discontinued from treatment due to increase in AST.
