CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

    OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY
    Given the benefits observed with PARP inhibitors for patients with ovarian and breast cancer, investigators were eager to evaluate the potential of these agents in other BRCA-driven cancer types and for patients with other DNA damage repair (DDR) deficiencies. The prevalence of patients with prostate cancer with DDR gene mutations led to early clinical trials evaluating PARP inhibitor monotherapy for this disease, and these efforts revealed significant activity, sparking an eagerness to combine PARP inhibitors with other effective approaches in an attempt to further improve outcomes. A number of ongoing trials are investigating PARP inhibitors in combination with antiandrogen therapy or immune checkpoint inhibitors.

    These important developments have clear implications for patient care, but they have also brought with them many areas of controversy and uncertainty regarding the potential use of PARP inhibition for prostate cancer. These presentations by 3 leading genitourinary cancer experts aim to inform clinicians about the role of PARP inhibitors in the management of this disease. By providing information on the latest clinical developments in the context of expert perspectives, this activity will assist medical oncologists with the formulation of evidence-based strategies, which in turn will facilitate optimal patient care.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Understand how DDR pathway abnormalities can be targeted with PARP inhibition in patients with PC.
    • Recognize the frequency with which germline and somatic BRCA1/2 and other DDR mutations occur in patients with PC, and develop a rational clinical algorithm to guide the use of genetic testing.
    • Appreciate available clinical trial data and ongoing research with PARP inhibitors as monotherapy for appropriately selected patients with progressive metastatic PC, and consider the potential role of these strategies clinical care.
    • Recall the biologic rationale for and ongoing clinical trials evaluating the role of PARP inhibitors in combination with antiandrogen therapy or immunotherapy, and refer appropriate patients for clinical trial participation.
    • Recognize the side effects associated with PARP inhibitors for PC, and develop strategies to prevent, mitigate and manage toxicities.
