This video covers the treatment approach for patients with 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.

Aparicio gave a presentation on this topic at the 2017 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in Orlando, Florida.
