Paul L. Nguyen, MD, on Prostate Cancer: Active Surveillance
2017 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
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)
Roland Seiler, MD, of the University of British Columbia, discusses in German 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)
Joshua Armenia, PhD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses new information that is changing the understanding of prostate cancer, including the identification of a new subclass, which represents 21% of cases, and the discovery of recurrently mutated cancer pathways not previously implicated in prostate cancer (Abstract 131).
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)
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)
Rana R. McKay, MD, of the University of California, San Diego, discusses study findings on PD-1/PD-L1 responders with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who discontinue therapy for immune-related adverse events. (Abstract 467)
