Silke Gillessen, MD, on Prostate Cancer: Results From the REDUSE Trial on Denosumab
2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Silke Gillessen, MD, of Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen, discusses data from a phase III study on the incidence of hypocalcemia in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with denosumab. The trial was designed to assess prevention of symptomatic skeletal events with denosumab administered every 4 weeks vs every 12 weeks (Abstract 139).
Thomas Powles, MD, PhD, of Queen Mary University of London, discusses phase III study findings on ramucirumab plus docetaxel vs placebo plus docetaxel in patients with advanced platinum-refractory urothelial carcinoma (Abstract 353).
Brian I. Rini, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, discusses current models used to estimate the risk of recurrence as well as genomic data that could help pinpoint individual tumor biology.
Sumit K. Subudhi, MD, PhD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the initial results from a phase II study of nivolumab plus ipilimumab in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (Abstract 142).
Laurence Albiges, MD, PhD, of Gustave Roussy, discusses findings on the safety and efficacy of nivolumab used in a “real world” prospective study on metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). This research was conducted after nivolumab was approved for the treatment of mRCC following failure of one or two tyrosine kinase inhibitors (Abstract 542).
Jason A. Efstathiou, MD, DPhil, of Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses the debate over treating muscle-invasive bladder cancer with radical cystectomy vs trimodality therapy.
