STATEMENT OF NEED
Prostate cancer is the most common tumor type among men in the United States. Typically, androgen deprivation therapy is administered for progressive disease. However, castration resistance or unresponsiveness to androgen deprivation therapy or to antiandrogens frequently develops over time. The transition from castration-sensitive to castration-resistant disease has yet to be understood and represents a significant unmet need. Metastatic CRPC is the primary cause of prostate-related mortality, accounting for an estimated 26,730 deaths annually. Median overall survival remains less than 2 years.
Medical oncologists, urologists, oncology advanced practitioners, oncology and urology nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate recent study findings on combination and sequential treatment strategies for patients with metastatic CRPC
- Determine which predictive/prognostic biomarker tests are ready for application in metastatic CRPC practice
- Utilize strategies for evaluating treatment response, incorporating imaging studies, prostate-specific antigen levels, and clinical findings
