Prostate cancer is the most diagnosed non-cutaneous cancer in men in
the United States (US) and remains the second leading cause of
cancer deaths among American men, with an estimated 191,930 new
cases diagnosed in 2020. Prostate cancer deaths are typically the
result of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), and most
patients will eventually experience disease progression despite
castration, with a median duration of response of 12–24 months.
About 40 percent of these patients have prostate cancer that is also
associated with a rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level that
has not spread to other parts of the body. The danger that can
occur, if not caught early, is that 33% of those men could have the
cancer spread to other parts of the body.
Upon completion of this
activity, participants will be able to:
Explore clinical guidelines and new
evidence for appropriate treatment decision-making for prostate
Assess the sequencing of novel
therapies and be able to identify patient progression of disease
by PSA, imaging, signs and symptoms
Discuss current and emerging
treatments for patients with prostate cancer based on clinical
trial safety and efficacy data
Analyze the unique mechanism of
action and adverse effects of new and existing agents, including
PARP inhibitor-based therapies
Examine the managed care
considerations of current and emerging treatments by
understanding the use of a multidisciplinary team to implement
