Sequencing Treatments in Metastatic Prostate Cancer - Evan Yu

Evan Yu and Alicia Morgans share in a discussion on where we are in understanding treatment options for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) and sequencing treatments after progression from nmCPRC to mCRPC. The conversation includes selecting and evaluating patients with mCRPC and how treatments are selected for these patients. Dr. Yu discusses the opportunities to individualize tr...

Real World Treatment Experience with Radium-223 - Daniel George

Dan George concentrated on the patient experience in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). He described a typical treatment timeline where a new patient presents with elevated PSA is initially treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADP) to reduce testosterone feeding tumor growth. While the patient may initially respond with a reduced PSA, it is most common...

Bone Health in Prostate Cancer - A Conversation with Neal Shore and Oliver Sartor

Neal Shore and Oliver Sartor have a conversation on bone-targeted agent therapies in prostate cancer, specifically focusing on the ALSYMPCA phase three trial; the design, findings, the addition of radium-223 and what this trial has led to today. They review a few other current ongoing trials including the PEACE III single arm trial and other current approaches in understanding combination therapie...

Whole Body MRI Scanning and Disease Progression - Anwar Padhani

Professor Anwar Padhani discusses the value of whole body MRI scanning in diagnosing disease progression at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2017 conference. Dr. Padhani discusses the biggest advantage of using whole body MRI scanning versus bone or CT scans, which is the ability to detect metastatic disease in bone. Whole body MRI scans are also accurate in detecting castrate-resi...

The Future of Targeted Alpha Therapy - Neal Shore

(Length of lecture - 30 minutes) Dr. Neal Shore discusses the evolving interest in Alpha-Emitting Radionuclide Therapy over the past 20 years, which is due to advances in the targeted delivery of radionuclides as well as increased availability of many different alpha emitters. These developments have led to a number of clinical trials in this space, particularly with Radium-223 , which is the only...

RADAR II Group Recommendations - The Role of Therapeutic Layering

David Crawford, MD discusses with Thomas Keane, MD, the paper, RADAR II: The Role of Therapeutic Layering in Optimizing Treatment for Patients with Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer, which was designed to offer recommendations on identification of disease progression, treatment management strategies, and suggestions on timing of initiating and discontinuing specific castration-resistant prostat...
