Advances in metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer

Associate Professor Alicia Morgans gives us her insight into the recent advances in metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer treatment.

A modified standard of care in mHSPC

Data from a number of key trials suggests that standard of care for treatment of metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) has changed. Prof. Morgans examines the data and the challenges of this changing landscape. Addressed is how patient selection is critical to treatment decisions for mHSPC, and why combination therapies are becoming the new standard of care.

Trials examining combination therapy for mHSPC

Combination therapy for treatment of mHSPC data from key trials including CHAARTED, LATITUDE, and STAMPEDE are covered. These studies examine androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and docetaxel chemotherapy combination, or ADT in combination with abiraterone acetate plus prednisone or prednisolone. Focused are the difference in response between high volume disease patients and low volume disease patients. Addressed are survival benefit and the importance of quality of life benefit as a consideration in treating patient subgroups. Prof. Morgans explains why, considering these studies, she chooses to use abiraterone for low volume patients. You are invited to watch the video and download the slides to gain from these clinical insights in prostate cancer treatment.

Dr Morgans is Genitourinary Medical Oncologist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Faculty in Medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. She completed medical school and residency at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at Harvard’s Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center in Boston and earned a Master of Public Health at Vanderbilt University. Dr Morgans treats patients with prostate, bladder, and testicular cancer, and her research assesses complications of advanced prostate cancer survivorship and patient-centered treatment decision-making in advanced prostate cancer.
