Implementation of Markers in Clinical Practice

David S. Morris, MD, FACS, discusses implementation of various markers in screening, diagnosing, and treating prostate cancer in community practice. He discusses the G-Minor (Genomics in Michigan ImpactiNg Observation or Radiation) trial and a retrospective analysis of the STAMPEDE (Systemic Therapy in Advancing or Metastatic Prostate Cancer: Evaluation of Drug Efficacy) trial, wherein certain markers were able to predict both metastasis-free survival and overall survival.

Advanced Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Updates

David S. Morris, MD, FACS, of Urology Associates, PC in Nashville, Tennessee discusses advanced prostate cancer updates, including those shared recently at medical conferences including the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU) as well as several studies, namely the STAMPEDE trial, PEACE-1, ARASENS, ENZAMET, PROpel, and MAGNITUDE. Dr. Morris unpacks the takeaways, explaining that doctors should consider adding abiraterone to androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for high-risk, non-metastatic disease; consider adding abiraterone or darolutamide for patients with mCSPC whose therapy will include using docetaxel; and consider adding poly-ADP-ribose polymerase inhibitors (PARPi) to abiraterone in patients with first-line mCRPC.

Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer: Challenges and Opportunities for Treating the Unmet Medical Need

David S. Morris, MD, FACS, discusses current methods of diagnosing and risk-stratifying upper tract urothelial cancer (UTUC), as well as the implications of disease risk on treatment decisions. He notes the unmet need for an effective kidney-sparing option for low-risk patients, and the potential for chemoablation with UGN-101 to address this need based on findings from the OLYMPUS trial.
