How Best to Treat cN1 Prostate Cancer - Karim Fizazi

Karim Fizazi summarizes how best to treat node-positive (cN+) prostate cancer patients at the Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC 2019). There are over 20 randomized controlled trials in localized and advanced prostate cancer that have been published according to Dr. Fizazi, yet he notes, none have been published in the setting of node-positive prostate cancer. In this presentation Dr. Fizazi discussed the role of abiraterone in high-risk non-metastatic prostate cancer patients shown in the STAMPEDE trial, whether there is a difference between node positive disease in the pelvis compared to the retroperitoneum, and he concluded his presentation by emphasizing that there is currently insufficient evidence to support any specific treatment in node-positive prostate cancer.
