Axel S. Merseburger, MD, on Prostate Cancer: New Data From the PRESIDE Trial on Enzalutamide, Docetaxel, and Prednisolone
2022 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Axel S. Merseburger, MD, of the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, discusses results from a phase IIIb study of chemotherapy-naive patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who have been treated with docetaxel plus prednisolone and experienced disease progression on enzalutamide. The data suggest that continued enzalutamide plus docetaxel improved progression-free survival compared with placebo plus docetaxel (Abstract 15).
Fred Saad, MD, of the University of Montreal Health Centre, discusses phase III findings demonstrating for the first time the clinical benefits of olaparib plus abiraterone in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, irrespective of their homologous recombination repair mutation status. This regimen led to significantly longer radiographic progression-free survival than placebo plus abiraterone (Abstract 11).
Karen E. Knudsen, PhD, MBA, Chief Executive Officer of the American Cancer Society, discusses ways to address the inequities in genitourinary screening, treatment, and outcomes. Her suggestions focus on increasing awareness of screening, identifying risk factors, the dramatic rise in incidence among Hispanic individuals, and the basis for increased mortality in Black men.
Axel Bex, MD, PhD, of The Netherlands Cancer Institute, discusses an efficacy, safety, and biomarker analysis of neoadjuvant avelumab and axitinib in patients with localized renal cell carcinoma who are at high risk of relapse after nephrectomy (Abstract 289).
Alicia K. Morgans, MD, MPH, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses findings from the largest digital survey conducted in patients with prostate cancer, allowing identification of unmet needs in the patient journey. Preliminary data suggest that lower rates of screening may correlate with higher rates of symptoms at diagnosis and potentially later-stage diagnosis.
Daniel P. Petrylak, MD, of Yale Cancer Center, discusses new data on the antitumor activity of neoadjuvant treatment with enfortumab vedotin-ejfv monotherapy in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer who are not eligible for cisplatin.
