DNA Repair and PARP Inhibitor Therapy in Prostate Cancer - Veda Giri, Patrick Pilié, and Arpit Rao

Details
Charles Ryan, MD, is joined by Veda Giri, MD, Patrick Pilié, MD, and Arpit Rao, MD, MBBS, for a roundtable discussion on DNA repair and Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor therapy in prostate cancer. To begin, Dr. Giri discusses the need for widespread genetic testing in the clinic today. Following the May 2020 United States Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approvals of PARP inhibitors...

Integrating Genetics and Genomics into Treatment Decisions for Men with Prostate Cancer - Panagiotis Vlachostergios

Details
Panagiotis Vlachostergios, MD, PhD, joins Alicia Morgans, MD, MPH, to discuss germline and somatic genetic testing and the ways in which genomic material can be integrated into clinical practice. Dr. Morgans and Dr. Vlachostergios agree that patients with metastatic disease, among others, should undergo germline genetic testing, and describe how genetic counselors can help patients make sense of g...

Personalized Approaches to the Treatment of Prostate Cancer - Kenneth Pienta and James Gulley

Details
Ken Pienta, MD, discusses the role of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in facilitating personalized medicine as an imaging agent and selection tool for assigning patients to targeted therapy. He mentions the myriad of trials on PSMA radio-ligand therapeutics that have validated its effect in patients for metastatic prostate cancer. James Gulley, MD, Ph.D., FACS, gives an overview of genom...

Implementation of Germline Testing for Prostate Cancer - Veda Giri

Details
Charles Ryan, MD, and Veda Giri, MD discuss consensus building for germline genetic testing in prostate cancer, a relevant topic given the recent FDA approval of two PARP inhibitors. Dr. Giri reflects on results from the Philadelphia Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference held in October 2019, which sought to address some of the challenges that have arisen as testing has increased and to develop a f...

Targeted Radionuclide Therapy of Prostate Cancer - Wolfgang Weber

Details
Phil Koo, MD is joined by Wolfgang Weber, MD sharing his thoughts on the current state of PSMA based therapies. Dr. Weber discusses which patients respond well to this treatment, as well as the research being done to better understand why some patients do not respond well to this treatment. Dr. Weber concludes with a glimpse of things to come for PSMA based therapies. Biographies: Wolfgang Weber,...

Clinical Understanding of PARP Inhibitors in Prostate Cancer - Elena Castro, Wassim Abida, and Karen Knudsen

Details
Elena Castro, Wassim Abida, and Karen Knudsen discuss multiple topics regarding the use of PARP inhibitors in prostate cancer treatments. The three debate PARP response data, the functions of PARP inhibitors, the importance of androgen deprivation in the use of PARP inhibitors, and genomic testing in prostate cancer. Biographies: Karen Knudsen, Ph.D., Director, National Cancer Institute (NCI), Sid...

Novel Radiopharmaceuticals In Development For Treatment in Advanced Prostate Cancer - Michael Morris

Details
Michael Morris joins Alicia Morgans to discuss the new agents in development in the field of radiopharmaceuticals in advanced prostate cancer. Historically, much of the research has revolved around bone-targeted radiopharmaceuticals such as radium-223, however, Dr. Morris reviews the development of tumor-directed radiopharmaceuticals that are currently coming into clinical trials. The new therapie...

Best of ASCO 2020 Prostate Cancer - Oliver Sartor

Details
Oliver Sartor joins Alicia Morgans to speak about several prostate cancer studies making an impact on the diagnosis of prostate cancer and the treatment paradigm for this disease. They highlight 68Ga-PSMA-11 for pelvic nodal metastasis detection prior to radical prostatectomy and pelvic Lymph node dissection and the CONDOR study on the impact of PSMA-targeted imaging with 18F-DCFPyL-PET/CT in men...

TheraP: 177Lu-PSMA617 Theranostic vs Cabazitaxel in Progressive Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC) - Michael Hofman & Ian Davis

Details
Ian Davis, MBBS, PhD, FRACP, and Michael Hofman, MBBS, FRACP, discuss the TheraP trial with Alicia Morgans, MD, MPH, which was presented at the ASCO 2020 virtual meeting. This study showed that in men with docetaxel-treated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), LuPSMA was more active than cabazitaxel. Drs. Hofman and Davis provide insights into how Lutetium-PSMA works mechanisti...

PARP Inhibition in Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer - Daniel Petrylak

Details
Dan Petrylak joins Tom Keane to discuss PARP inhibition in castration-resistant prostate cancer. In this lecture, Dr. Petrylak discusses the germline DNA repair mutations involved in prostate cancer. This is a state of the art lecture establishing the rationale for the clinical trials evaluating PARP inhibitors in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Biographies: Daniel P. Petrylak, MD...
