It is an exciting time for prostate cancer due to the growth in new treatments. Dr George said that it is, in fact, both exciting and daunting to have all of these new agents being developed. Currently, there is a shortage in data for practitioners in using the new agents in sequence or combination. Dr George points out that all of the new therapies are based on an overall survival improvement, which is different from other cancer fields. He uses melanoma as an example where drugs are approved based upon a prolongation of survival of a small subset of patients. “Here, we are seeing improvements in the median survival of a broad unselected patient population of castration-resistant prostate cancer,” said Dr George.
