Christopher P. Smith, MD, MBA, MSS, describes the treatment pathway for advanced overactive bladder (OAB) patients as described in the American Urological Association (AUA)/ Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine & Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU) OAB guidelines. He discusses novel treatment approaches, including rechargeable sacral neuromodulation devices, implantable tibial nerve stimulators, bladder denervation, and transcutaneous stimulation of the tibial nerves.

Integration of Germline Testing in Prostate Cancer Screening

Integration of Germline Testing in Prostate Cancer Screening

Thomas J. Polascik, MD, FACS, surveys the current status of germline testing for prostate cancer in screening populations, and explains how his institution, Duke University, has been advancing research in this area. He discusses current studies measuring the ability of germline testing to predict outcomes, highlights the Duke algorithm for when and whom to test, and describes challenges for integrating germline testing into the current model of prostate cancer screening.

Response to Apalutamide Among Patients With Nonmetastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (nmCRPC) From SPARTAN by DECIPHER Genomic Classifier Score

Response to Apalutamide Among Patients With Nonmetastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (nmCRPC) From SPARTAN by DECIPHER Genomic Classifier Score

Fred Saad, MD, FRCS, presents findings from an exploratory analysis he led and presented at the American Urological Association’s 2019 Annual Meeting. The study evaluated the association between DECIPHER genomic classifier (GC) score and metastasis-free survival following apalutamide treatment in nonmetastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) patients included in the SPARTAN study.
