The experience with cytotoxic chemotherapy in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer - Abstract

This article reviews the initial experience with chemotherapy in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and outlines some of the ongoing clinical trials in this area.

In addition, the authors outline current knowledge on outcomes of patients treated with taxane-based chemotherapy on retrospective analysis of randomized trials. These data are intended to provide physicians and patients with a general idea on the outcomes of men with mCRPC that may facilitate clinical decisions as well as the design and evaluation of clinical trials.
