AUA Annual Meeting Highlights (2018): Advanced and Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

There is a growing need for urologists to be able to effectively manage castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). CRPC is defined clinically as a failure of castration or androgen ablation therapy to prevent a worsening of a patient's prostate cancer and is associated with advanced disease. Approximately 28% of patients with prostate cancer will advance to CRPC. The median age at diagnosis of CRPC is 77 years and, as might be expected, these patients often have comorbidities, the most common of which are hypertension, dyspnea and anemia. More than 84% of patients diagnosed with CRPC have metastatic disease. Of those patients without metastases, 33% can expect to develop them within 2 years. The median survival of patients with CRPC is 9 to 30 months (median 14 months).
