New Treatment Options for Prostate Cancer

After decades of incremental progress, at best, in treating advanced prostate cancer, men with androgen independent disease now have many different treatment options. Since 2010, 5 new drugs representing 4 different treatment strategies that offer not only symptom relief, but also longer survival, have been approved by the FDA. Furthermore, stimulated by this success, there is a rich pipeline of drugs representing next, and best in class agents and novel mechanisms jockeying for position in a rapidly evolving treatment paradigm, wherein benchmarks for success continue to rise. This panel will discuss these advancements, and prospects for future efforts, from the perspectives of academic researchers driving the scientific and clinical understanding of prostate cancer and biopharmaceutical industry leaders forming alliances to bring these therapies to patients.
