Brian C. Allen, MD, on Assessing Tumor Response: Standard-of-Care vs Computer-Assisted Evaluation
2017 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Brian C. Allen, MD, of Duke University Medical Center, discusses the benefits of using a computerized process that provides step-wise guidance, decreases interpretation time, and reduces errors when measuring tumor response to treatment. (Abstract 432)
Toni K. Choueiri, MD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses study findings on apatorsen plus docetaxel vs docetaxel alone in platinum-resistant metastatic urothelial cancer. (Abstract 289)
Paul L. Nguyen, MD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, summarizes a session he co-chaired, which included discussion of Canadian vs U.S. guidelines; ProtecT; genomic and hereditary tests; and imaging to guide active surveillance. (General Session 1)
L. Michael Glodé, MD, of the University of Colorado Cancer Center, discusses study findings on adjuvant androgen deprivation vs mitoxantrone plus prednisone plus ADT in high-risk prostate cancer patients following radical prostatectomy. (Abstract 2)
Roland Seiler, MD, of the University of British Columbia, discusses a way to identify molecular subtypes of muscle-invasive bladder cancer, the varying responses to cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and which patients show the most benefit. (Abstract 281)
W. Marston Linehan, MD, of the National Cancer Institute, discusses the genetic basis of the different types of kidney cancer, which provides the key to clinical management.
