Recent Advances in Medical Oncology: Prostate Cancer (Webinar Video Proceedings)
Released September 2020

Featuring perspectives from Drs Robert Dreicer, Daniel P Petrylak, and Christopher Sweeney. (Video Program)

CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

    Cancers of the genitourinary system affect hundreds of thousands of individuals within the United States each year and account for more than one fourth of all newly diagnosed human cancer cases. Of this diverse array of distinct diseases, tumors of the prostate are among the most prevalent and are thus the focus of extensive ongoing clinical research. A result of this research is that the clinical management of both early and more advanced presentations of prostate cancer (PC) is constantly evolving, necessitating rapid and consistent access to learning opportunities for clinicians. To provide these clinicians with therapeutic strategies to address the needs of patients, this CME webinar originally planned as a live symposium for the 2020 ASCO Annual Meeting uses the perspectives of a group of leading clinical investigators to address some of the most frequently encountered questions and controversies in the management of PC. By providing information on the latest research developments and their potential application to routine practice, this activity is designed to assist medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of PC with the formulation of up-to-date clinical management strategies.


    • Evaluate the published research database supporting the recent FDA approvals of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic castration-resistant PC (CRPC), and apply this information in the discussion of nonresearch treatment options with patients.
    • Appraise the similarities and differences among commercially available next-generation antiandrogens in order to personalize therapy selection for patients.
    • Recognize the adverse effects associated with hormonal agents commonly employed in the management of PC, and develop strategies to prevent, mitigate and manage these toxicities.
    • Explore available data on the use of cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy for hormone-sensitive metastatic PC in order to effectively design treatment plans for appropriate patients.
    • Apply clinical research findings in the determination of best-practice selection and sequencing of available local and systemic treatment modalities for patients with metastatic CRPC.
    • Describe the rationale for testing patients with progressive CRPC for BRCA1/2 or other related mutations, and advise individuals found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about the FDA approvals and potential benefits of PARP inhibitors.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for PC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
