AUA Annual Meeting Highlights: Advanced Prostate Cancer (2017)

The urologist’s role in treating advanced prostate cancer patients continues to expand as the therapeutic options increase. Since 2010, five therapies have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with survival benefit. It is critical that urologists remain engaged and knowledgeable on the management of CRPC in the contemporary setting of a multitude of new agents becoming available to treat patients.
