Current Trends in the Management of Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

STATEMENT OF NEED

Prostate cancer is the most common tumor type in 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. Nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is a highly heterogeneous disease process with a dearth of effective treatment options. Metastatic CRPC is the primary cause of prostate-related mortality, accounting for an estimated 29,430 deaths annually. Median overall survival remains less than 2 years.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Medical oncologists, urologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with CRPC.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

1. Assess predictive and prognostic markers to refine treatment planning for individual patients with CRPC
2. Distinguish findings from recent clinical studies on novel combination and sequential treatment strategies for nonmetastatic and metastatic CRPC
3. Develop supportive care plans to monitor and manage adverse events associated with novel treatment strategies for CRPC
