The Changing Therapeutic Landscape of Prostate Cancer- Nicholas Vogelzang

Details
Nick Vogelzang discusses a brief history of the advancements in treating prostate cancer. He provides background on how we have arrived at where we are now with the advances in both the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer while talking with Alicia Morgans. Dr. Vogelzang reflects upon the time when we were relegated to using primitive bone scans to define disease to the current era of advanc...

Improved Survival Outcomes of African America Men with mCRPC Treated with Sipuleucel-T - Kelvin Moses

Details
Kelvin Moses explores the clinical benefit of sipuleucel-T treatment in African American men with advanced prostate cancer in this conversation with Alicia Morgans. A large volume of evidence has demonstrated that African American men have an increased risk of developing mCRPC and have higher mortality as compared with Caucasian men. Sipuleucel-T has demonstrated a survival benefit in men with met...

Treatment Decisions for Patients with Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer: A Retrospective Study of Real-World Experience - Tia Higano

Details
Alicia Morgans invites Tia Higano to discuss data analysis amongst patients with mCRPC who were enrolled in the Flatiron Health prostate cancer registry from 2013-2017. Findings include the discovery that 77% of patients receive some form of life-prolonging therapy and that only 60% of the patients ever received either denosumab or zoledronic acid. Alicia and Tia conclude by stating the importance...

Racial Disparities in Prostate Cancer Treatment and Outcomes - Susan Halabi

Details
Susan Halabi discusses new findings in the evaluation of racial disparities in progression-free survival across nine trials. Biographies: Susan Halabi Ph.D Professor of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. Duke Cancer Institute Alicia Morgans, MD, MPH , Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinoi...

Improving Natural Killer Cell Immunotherapy for Cancer - Martin Felices

Details
Martin Felices discusses a unique approach to using natural killer (NK) cells to target a variety of cancers. NK cells seek out abnormal cells while also producing inflammatory cytokines that induce the adaptive immune response. There is a known role of NK cells in hematologic malignancies whereas in tumor micro environments the NK cells display characteristics of exhaustion and lack of maturation...

Overall Survival Benefit and Racial Disparities in African American Men with Metastatic Prostate Cancer - Oliver Sartor

Details
Neal Shore and Oliver Sartor cover the topic of racial disparities in prostate cancer and the use of immunotherapy particularly sipuleucel-T in the African American community. Oliver does a deep dive into the double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial, Immunotherapy for Prostate Adenocarcinoma Treatment (IMPACT) study, involving 512 men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer...

The Prevalence of Microsatellite Instability in Prostate Cancer and Response to Immune Checkpoint Blockade - Wassim Abida

Details
Wassim Abida joins Charles Ryan in a discussion on a JAMA Oncology published paper on the Analysis of the Prevalence of Microsatellite Instability in Prostate Cancer and Response to Immune Checkpoint Blockade. Wassim details the prevalence of MSI-H/dMMR prostate cancer and the clinical benefit of anti–PD-1/programmed cell death 1 ligand 1 (PD-L1) therapy in this molecularly defined population. The...

Targeting Glutamine Metabolism Pathways for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer - Richard Lee

Details
Richard Lee, a 2017 PCF Challenge Award recipient, discusses his research on the metabolics of prostate cancer. The upcoming Phase 1 research in men with CRPC is centered around inhibiting the glutaminase pathway in combination with a PARP inhibitor. The rationale for targeting the glutaminase pathway stems from the fact that cancer cells deplete glucose as a carbon source, a necessary element for...

Introducing TIN 117m for Convention Electron Therapy of mCRPC - Suresh Srivastava

Details
Suresh C. Srivastava presents the unique opportunities and future for nuclear medicine, including theragnostic radiopharmaceuticals for molecular imaging plus therapy and getting closer to personalized medicine, selection criteria, production, and the nuclear, physical, and chemical properties of certain dual-purpose radionuclides, including those that are currently being used, or studied and eval...

PROPHECY Trial: Circulating Tumor Cell as a Biomarker in mCRPC - Andrew Armstrong

Details
(Length of Discussion: 12 min) Charles Ryan and Andrew Armstrong discuss the PROPHECY study, a PCF challenge award, co-funded by Movember. Seeing the future with predictive biomarkers was the foundational vision for this study. For men with castration-resistant prostate cancer undergoing a range of therapies, two AR-V7 tests were prospectively compared to see how well they predicted both progressi...
