Pharmaco-ethnicity and its Impact on Prostate Cancer Treatment - Darren MC Poon

February 2, 2020

Darren Poon joins Alicia Morgans to discuss his presentation on pharmaco-ethnicities specifically as it relates to drug toxicities in Asian patients, and why it is important to think about on a wider scale at the 2019 Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC).  Dr. Poon addresses the importance that ethnic backgrounds have on the treatment of prostate cancer, largely arguing that these populations express different symptomology than their counterparts and treatment should be tailored to those needs.
