AUA Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Guidelines - Interview with Michael Cookson

(Length of Discussion: 10 min)

Michael Cookson, MD, MMHC, talks with Alicia Morgans, MD on the newest developments in the AUA CRPC guidelines and how they have adapted with the latest results of the SPARTAN and PROSPER nmCRPC studies.  The purpose of this guideline amendment is essentially to update current management of index patient 1: asymptomatic non-metastatic CRPC.
Michael shares there is a need to revamp current guidelines which are shifting into advanced prostate cancer, the hormone-sensitive space, newly diagnosed disease, and not just focusing on castration-resistant disease but focusing on the whole management of the advanced metastatic disease.
