Medical Crossfire®: Navigating Treatment Decisions in Advanced Prostate Cancer As New Options Emerge

Release Date: December 21, 2020
Expiration Date: December 21, 2021

Activity Overview

Prostate cancer is the leading type of cancer among men. It is estimated that in 2020 over 191,930 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed, and nearly 33,330 men will die from the disease. The past decade has witnessed significant advances in the treatment of advanced/metastatic prostate cancer, particularly for patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), largely due to our growing insight into the biology of disease. The new treatments allow physicians to target previously unattainable therapeutic goals and treat patients who would have received suboptimal therapy because of lack of better treatment strategies. These agents have advanced patient care through new combinations, improved survival rates and personalized therapies, as well as allowed treatment of difficult-to-treat patients who have failed previous therapies.

The Medical Crossfire®, one of PER®’s signature educational formats, is a video-based program in which a panel of distinguished experts engage in spirted discussions and debates on a particular clinical topic. In this activity, 4 key thought leaders explore the latest data regarding current and emerging therapeutic strategies for the management of metastatic and non-metastatic CRPC across lines of care. This lively discussion will help place new developments into clinical context to help you optimize care for your patients with prostate cancer.
