Research To Practice


Each 1-hour session will be divided into topic modules focused on current management, emerging research and novel agents and strategies under active investigation for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Each event will employ an identical format that will include the following elements:

  • Moderator Dr Neil Love and a featured participating clinical investigator
  • Discussion of participating faculty treatment recommendations
  • Review of available clinical research findings
  • Community oncologist video case presentations
  • Interactive audience polling and extensive Q&A

    MODULE 1: Selection and Sequencing of Therapy for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC)

    MODULE 2: Integration of PARP Inhibitors into the Management of mCRPC

    MODULE 3: Novel and Investigational Strategies for mCRPC

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

Learning Objectives

  • Assess the available and emerging research database surrounding the optimal management of mCRPC, and apply recent advances to current clinical care.
  • Establish an evidence-based approach to the selection, sequencing or combining of available therapeutic options for patients with mCRPC, considering age, comorbidities, prior therapeutic exposure and other relevant clinical and biologic factors.
  • Describe the rationale for testing patients with mCRPC for BRCA1/2 or other related mutations, and advise individuals found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about available data documenting the efficacy of PARP inhibition in specific settings.
  • Evaluate the recent FDA approvals of olaparib and rucaparib for patients with mCRPC, and optimally incorporate these agents into clinical algorithms.
  • Appreciate emerging Phase III data documenting the efficacy of 177Lu-PSMA-617 in patients with progressive PSMA-positive mCRPC, and consider the potential future clinical role of this strategy.
  • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for patients with mCRPC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
