Prostate Cancer

Two years of abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) plus prednisone added to androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) improved metastasis-free survival and overall survival compared with ADT alone in men with nonme­tastatic castration-­sensitive prostate cancer, whereas the addition of enzalutamide (Xtandi) to ADT had no benefit, and much greater toxicity.

Practical Applications and Clinical Utility of PYLARIFY® (piflufolastat F 18) Injection: An ¹⁸F-PSMA PET/CT Imaging Agent for Prostate Cancer
A series of interviews was recently conducted with a panel of experts on prostate cancer imaging modalities that included Steven Rowe, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, and Neal D. Shore, MD, FACS, CMO, Surgical Oncology/Urology Genesis Care, US; Director, CPI, Carolina Urologic Research Center, Myrtle Beach, SC. Read More ›

Preliminary results from the first prospective study of a genomic classifier for African-American men suggest that both disparities in access to care and biological factors may be responsible for the increased incidence and mortality in this patient population. The study also identified a significant age difference between African-American and non–African-American men with respect to high genomic risk. These findings were presented during the American Society of Clinical Oncology 2021 virtual annual meeting. Read More ›

Cabazitaxel (Jevtana) is approved as third-line therapy for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) after treatment with docetaxel and an androgen receptor inhibitor. A new phase 2 clinical trial shows that the radionuclide therapy that targets the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), 177Lu-PSMA-617, reduced the risk for disease progression or death by 37% compared with cabazitaxel in men with previously treated metastatic CRPC. Moreover, the TheraP study showed that patients who received 177Lu-PSMA-617 had fewer side effects and improved quality of life compared with patients who received cabazitaxel. Read More ›

Rucaparib (Rubraca, Clovis Oncology) demonstrated promising antitumor activity in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and a deleterious BRCA alteration, according to results of a study published online in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Read More ›

Black men with low-risk prostate cancer who were on active surveillance had an increased risk for disease progression and definitive treatment compared with their non-Hispanic White counterparts, but not increased mortality, according to the results of a recent study. Read More ›

Oral relugolix given daily is superior to standard androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) with leuprolide (Lupron) in men with advanced prostate cancer, according to the results of the phase 3 HERO study, which were reported at the ASCO 2020 virtual annual meeting and published online before the meeting (Shore ND, et al. N Engl J Med. 2020;382:2187-2196). Read More ›

arly results from the phase 2 TheraP clinical trial show that the targeted radiation therapy 177Lutetium PSMA-617 (Lu-PSMA) significantly improved prostate-specific antigen (PSA) response compared with standard cabazitaxel in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) that progressed after docetaxel therapy.

Treatment with cabozantinib (Cabometyx), a kinase inhibitor, plus atezolizumab (Tecentriq), a PD-L1 inhibitor, led to clinically meaningful activity in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), including those with high-risk clinical features, according to the results of the phase 1b COSMIC-021 trial.

Treatment with a combination of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and enzalutamide (Xtandi) continues to show substantial activity in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) who have already been treated with abiraterone (Zytiga), according to results of a recent clinical trial, which were presented during the virtual 2020 American Urological Association Annual Meeting.
