Cancer Network presents exclusive coverage from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2016 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, held January 7–9 in San Francisco. We’ll bring you reports as we cover the latest research, trials, scientific advances, and controversies that are changing the way genitourinary cancers are managed and treated.

Genitourinary Cancers

In this interview we discuss predictive biomarkers and response to immune checkpoint inhibitors for urothelial tumors, which include tumors of the bladder, ureters, and the renal pelvis.

Combined use of systematic and targeted magnetic resonance-ultrasound–guided fusion biopsy was effective in diagnosing clinically significant prostate cancer.

A study found that about half of advanced germ cell tumor patients with platinum-resistant or -refractory disease harbor potentially actionable mutations.

An observational study found that adjuvant chemotherapy improves overall survival in patients with locally advanced bladder cancer.

A 55-year-old Hispanic male presents with a family history of gastric cancer in one sibling and prostate cancer in an older brother. CT performed in March 2015 for IMT surveillance showed a heterogeneous prostate with local invasion involving the bladder, seminal vesicles, and perirectal fat.

Results from the large STAMPEDE trial suggest that the combination of zoledronic acid and celecoxib along with standard of care could improve failure-free survival in prostate cancer patients starting hormone therapy whose disease has metastasized.

The combination of the novel histone deacetylase inhibitor entinostat and high-dose interleukin-2 yielded a promising response rate in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
