Stefanie C. Fischer, MD, on Nonseminoma: Outcomes After Adjuvant Bleomycin/Etoposide/Cisplatin
2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Stefanie C. Fischer, MD, of Manchester Cancer Research Centre and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, discusses an international retrospective analysis of the rare clinical scenario of men relapsing after adjuvant treatment with bleomycin/etoposide/cisplatin for clinical stage I nonseminoma (Abstract 510).
Karim Fizazi, MD, PhD, of the University of Paris-Sud and Gustave Roussy, discusses final phase III findings on men with newly diagnosed, high-risk, metastatic, castration-naive prostate cancer who were treated with abiraterone acetate plus prednisone added to androgen-deprivation therapy (Abstract 141).
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).
Ignacio Duran, MD, PhD, of the Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla, discusses an overall survival analysis of the phase III METEOR trial of cabozantinib vs everolimus in advanced renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 550).
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).
Brian C. Baumann, MD, of Washington University School of Medicine, discusses phase III study findings on adjuvant sequential chemotherapy plus radiotherapy vs adjuvant radiotherapy alone for locally advanced bladder cancer after radical cystectomy (Abstract 351).
