Optimizing Survival in Advanced Prostate Cancer
A Sanofi Oncologysponsored symposium

By: Bertrand Tombal, Belgium (Chair); Stйphane Oudard, France; and Fred Saad, Canada

In this symposium, held during the 34th Congress of the SIU in Glasgow, Scotland, Prof. Tombal, Prof. Saad and Prof. Oudard offer a complete description of the changing scenario in the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and hormone-naïve M+ prostate cancer.

The incorporation of cabazitaxel, and the new hormones abiraterone and enzalutamida, opened new perspectives in the treatment of CRPC, with most registration trials showing a 20% to 30% reduction in the risk of death. The different randomized control trials, including the combination of different agents targeting the androgen receptor and exploring the gene sequencing, are critically assessed.

In summary, this symposium provides a complete update on the changes and challenges of advanced prostate cancer treatment.
