Cases From The Community — Urologic Oncology Investigators Provide Perspectives on the Optimal Management of Prostate Cancer

Room 265-268
Satellite Symposia


Learning Objectives:

• Appraise published research findings and current guideline recommendations on optimal management approaches for patients with biochemical recurrence following local treatment for prostate cancer (PC), and counsel appropriate individuals regarding the potential benefits of systemic therapy.

• Evaluate the published research database supporting the FDA approvals of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic castration-resistant PC, and apply this information in the discussion of nonresearch treatment options for patients.

• Explore available data with the use of treatment intensification with cytotoxic or secondary hormonal therapy for metastatic hormone-sensitive PC and effectively integrate these approaches into current clinical management algorithms.

• Establish an evidence-based approach to the selection and sequencing of available therapeutic options for patients with metastatic castration-resistant PC (mCRPC), considering age, comorbidities, prior therapeutic exposure and other relevant clinical and biologic factors.

• Assess the available and emerging research database supporting the use of PARP inhibitors for patients with mCRPC, and discern how to optimally incorporate these agents into current and future treatment plans for patients.

• Appreciate available Phase III data documenting the efficacy of PSMA-targeted radioligand therapy in patients with progressive PSMA-positive mCRPC, and consider the potential future clinical role of this strategy.

• Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for PC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
