The incidence of early-stage prostate cancer in men 50 years and older continued a decline reported earlier, with lower rates in 2013 compared to 2012. This is a likely result of the October 2011 recommendation from the USPSTF against routine PSA testing in all men.
Androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) is associated with shortened survival in African American men with favorable-risk prostate cancer, according to a new study. The results suggest ADT should be reserved for men with higher risk disease.
A randomized phase III trial found that a hypofractionated radiotherapy regimen was not superior to, but generally equivalent to a conventional radiotherapy scheme in men with localized prostate cancer.
In this video, Dr. Nicholas David James discusses the results of the STAMPEDE trial, which tested front-line docetaxel combined with hormonal therapy in patients with advanced, hormone-naive prostate cancer.
Dr. Morris discusses results and implications of the CHAARTED trial, which studied the survival impact of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) plus docetaxel vs ADT alone for hormone-sensitive newly metastatic prostate cancer.
