Treatment Approach for Androgen Receptor–Indifferent Prostate Cancer

 

In this video, Ana Aparicio, MD, of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the treatment approach for patients with androgen receptor (AR)-indifferent prostate cancer.

AR-indifferent prostate cancer can include patients with small-cell carcinoma or neuroendocrine tumors, which are often AR-negative, but often these are mixed with disease elements that do express the AR.

Recent data suggests these patients are more likely to response to platinum-based chemotherapy such as carboplatin.
