Welcome to the initiation of the nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) Center of Excellence.

Until February, 2018 and the milestone ASCO GU presentations of the Phase III trials, SPARTAN and PROSPER, there did not exist a globally conducted trial demonstrating level one evidence via a randomized, prospective, blinded, placebo controlled protocol whereby an oral pharmacologic agents provided a significant delay in metastases free survival(MFS). In reviewing the AUA castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) index cases and the recommendation for systemic therapeutic intervention, only index Case1, an nmCRPC patient, lacked level one evidence for any regulatory approved medication.
