MODULE 1: Recent Data Defining the Optimal Use of Hormonal Therapy for Nonmetastatic Prostate Cancer

  • Rationale for the evaluation of treatment intensification with secondary hormonal agents combined with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for nonmetastatic prostate cancer
  • Design of, eligibility criteria for and major efficacy and safety findings from the Phase III EMBARK trial evaluating enzalutamide with leuprolide versus enzalutamide or leuprolide alone for patients with nonmetastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (nmHSPC) and high-risk biochemical recurrence after definitive therapy
  • Published data from the Phase III PRESTO trial evaluating ADT intensification with apalutamide with or without abiraterone for patients with high-risk biochemically relapsed prostate cancer; potential role of this strategy
  • Ongoing Phase III trials investigating secondary hormonal agents alone or in combination with ADT for patients with nmHSPC
  • Long-term findings documenting the effectiveness of enzalutamide, apalutamide and darolutamide for patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer

MODULE 2: Side Effects and Other Practical Considerations with Hormonal Therapy for Nonmetastatic Prostate Cancer

  • Tolerability profile of enzalutamide with and without ADT in the EMBARK study; differences, if any, from the experience with this agent in later disease settings
  • Incidence of hypertension and other cardiovascular adverse events (AEs) with different hormonal agents; optimal pretreatment cardiovascular assessment and monitoring/management of side effects during therapy
  • Spectrum and frequency of CNS-related AEs (eg, seizure, cognitive decline, falls, fatigue) observed with hormonal therapy in patients with prostate cancer
  • Risk of pathologic and nonpathologic fractures with ADT and androgen receptor (AR) pathway inhibitors; guideline-recommended bone health assessments for patients receiving hormonal therapy for prostate cancer
  • Prevalence of other notable side effects with available hormonal therapies for prostate cancer

MODULE 3: Current and Future Approaches to Hormonal Therapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer

  • Extended follow-up with abiraterone, enzalutamide and apalutamide in combination with ADT for patients with metastatic HSPC (mHSPC); appropriate integration of these therapies into practice
  • Published efficacy and safety data from the Phase III ARASENS trial evaluating darolutamide in combination with docetaxel and ADT for mHSPC
  • FDA approval of darolutamide/docetaxel/ADT for mHSPC; selection of optimal candidates for triplet therapy
  • Biological rationale for targeting the PI3K-AKT-mTOR pathway in prostate cancer; mechanism of action of and early data with capivasertib
  • Design, eligibility criteria and key endpoints of the Phase III CAPItello-281 study evaluating capivasertib in combination with ADT/abiraterone for mHSPC and PTEN deficiency
  • Other ongoing research investigating capivasertib for metastatic prostate cancer, such as the CAPItello-280 trial

MODULE 4: New Considerations with the Use of PARP Inhibitors for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC)

  • Incidence of BRCA1/2 and other homologous recombination repair (HRR) abnormalities in patients with prostate cancer; indications for and practical implementation of genetic testing
  • Similarities and differences in the designs and eligibility criteria of the Phase III PROpel, MAGNITUDE and TALAPRO-2 trials combining olaparib/abiraterone, niraparib/abiraterone and talazoparib/enzalutamide, respectively, in the first-line setting for mCRPC
  • Key efficacy and safety findings from PROpel, MAGNITUDE and TALAPRO-2 in patients with and without BRCA and other HRR gene mutations
  • FDA-approved indications for olaparib/abiraterone, niraparib/abiraterone and talazoparib/enzalutamide in mCRPC; individualized selection among these approaches
  • Long-term data with and current clinical role of olaparib and rucaparib monotherapy for patients with mCRPC
  • Ongoing Phase III studies evaluating PARP inhibitors in combination with secondary hormonal therapy in earlier disease settings

MODULE 5: Other Novel Therapies for Patients with Metastatic Prostate Cancer

  • Available data with, patient selection for and ongoing assessment of radium-223 in prostate cancer
  • Published Phase III data sets (eg, from the VISION and PSMAfore trials) with lutetium Lu 177 vipivotidetetraxetan for patients with PSMA-positive mCRPC; appropriate sequencing of lutetium Lu 177 vipivotide tetraxetan
  • Ongoing Phase III PSMAddition trial evaluating lutetium Lu 177 vipivotide tetraxetan in combination with AR-directed therapy and ADT for patients with mHSPC
  • Emerging positive findings from the Phase III SPLASH trial evaluating the investigational PSMA-targeted radiopharmaceutical 177Lu-PNT2002 for patients with mCRPC who have experienced disease progression on an AR pathway inhibitor and refuse or are not eligible for chemotherapy; potential implications for practice
  • Key findings from the Phase III CONTACT-02 trial comparing cabozantinib/atezolizumab to a second novel hormonal therapy for patients with mCRPC and measurable soft tissue disease who have previously received a novel hormonal agent
  • Other promising agents and strategies under investigation for metastatic prostate cancer

Target Audience
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Appraise published research findings on optimal disease management approaches for patients with biochemical recurrence following local treatment for prostate cancer, and counsel appropriate individuals regarding the potential benefits of systemic therapy.
  • Evaluate the published research database supporting the FDA approvals of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic prostate cancer, and apply this information in the discussion of nonresearch treatment options.
  • Explore available data with treatment intensification with cytotoxic therapy, secondary hormonal therapy or combinations of these approaches for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer and effectively integrate these strategies into current clinical management algorithms.
  • Establish an evidence-based approach to the selection and sequencing of available therapeutic options for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), considering age, comorbidities, prior therapeutic exposure and other relevant clinical and biological factors.
  • Assess the available research database supporting the use of PARP inhibitors as monotherapy or in combination with androgen receptor pathway inhibitors for patients with mCRPC harboring a homologous recombination repair gene alteration, and discern how to optimally incorporate these agents into current clinical management algorithms.
  • Appreciate available Phase III data documenting the efficacy of PSMA-targeted radioligand therapy for patients with PSMA-positive mCRPC, and consider the current and future clinical role of this strategy.
  • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for prostate cancer, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
