Felix Y. Feng, MD, of the University of California, San Francisco, discusses study findings showing that molecular determinants may help clinicians select patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who may derive the most benefit from apalutamide and other androgen-signaling inhibitors (Abstract 8).

Neeraj Agarwal, MD, of Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah, discusses final results of the phase III TITAN study, which showed apalutamide plus androgen-deprivation therapy improved overall survival, reducing the risk of death up to 48%. This combination treatment also delayed castration resistance and maintained health-related quality of life for patients with metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (Abstract 11).

Daniel M. Geynisman, MD, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses phase II results from the RETAIN BLADDER study, which sequenced bladder tumor samples while treating patients with neoadjuvant methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin chemotherapy. The goal was to increase metastasis-free survival and also preserve the bladder and quality of life (Abstract 397).

The trial showed this combination treatment is generally safe and may improve pathologic downstaging, but further study is warranted (Abstract 396).
