Changing Landscape of mHSPC: New Approaches to an Old Problem – Summary:

Michael S. Cookson, MD, MMHC, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Urology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, gives an overview of the changing landscape of metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC). He reviews the different treatment strategies that have undergone testing over the last eight decades, noting that although treatment options have progressed, there is still work to be done to continue improving results. He presents the findings of key studies that look to improve survival through the use of more potent androgen-targeting techniques, among other cutting edge treatments. These new treatments show promising results in lowering risk of spread and death, bolstering Dr. Cookson’s key point: that the landscape is rapidly changing, and urologists need to adapt quickly.
