Perspectives in mCRPC in 2024 – Summary

Alan H. Bryce, MD, reviews current research, perspectives, and practices in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Dr. Bryce begins with an overview of current treatment options and patterns of care and addresses the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Guidelines Version 4.2023 for prostate cancer

Dr. Bryce asserts that in light of few patients receiving treatments beyond first-line, a key operational principle should be to use the best drugs as early as possible. He explains that the management of mCRPC has become increasingly complex as new treatment paradigms have developed and new drugs have been approved. He recommends thinking about classes of drugs and considering how switching or combining classes can have advantages from the perspective of disease evolution. 

Dr. Bryce concludes with a brief overview of recent phase-three trial results including PSMAfore, SPLASH, and CONTACT-2. He acknowledges that after several years of continuous success, the development of new classes of drugs for prostate cancer has hit a lull but he asserts the pipeline is still full and since there is not yet a cure for prostate cancer, trials must continue.
