Brian Rini, MD, discussed abstracts presented during the 2021 ESMO Congress that will have an immediate impact on prostate cancer.
CancerNetwork® spoke with Brian Rini, MD, chief of clinical trials and professor of medicine at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, about intriguing abstracts presented at the 2021 European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress. He mentioned a pair of abstracts in prostate cancer that will impact practice moving forward.
In prostate cancer, there were 2 studies presented that will change practice. One was called PEACE-1 (NCT01957436), which looked at triplet therapy versus doublet therapy in prostate cancer. [The trial compared] 2 different hormonal agents plus chemotherapy versus just 1 hormone agent plus chemotherapy and showed a survival advantage that will absolutely impact practice. And then another in the rising PSA setting, looking at double hormone therapy versus single hormone therapy that also showed great results. I think those will immediately change practice.
