The presenting author – Fred Saad, from Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal in Quebec, Canada […]
Author: Laura Cowen medwireNews: Adding the androgen receptor inhibitor darolutamide to androgen-deprivation therapy plus docetaxel significantly improves overall survival (OS) in men with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC), show data from the phase 3 ARASENS trial. Furthermore, the “survival benefit was observed despite a high percentage of patients who received subsequent life-prolonging systemic therapy in […]
Simon Crabb outlines the final results of the rucaparib arm of the ATLANTIS trial of maintenance therapy in patients with metastatic urothelial cancer, and discusses them in light of the recent JAVELIN Bladder 100 and ATLAS trials (4:47).
