Sexual Function of Men Undergoing Active Prostate Cancer Treatment Versus Active Surveillance: Results of the Europa Uomo Patient Reported Outcome Study
touchREVIEWS in Oncology & Haematology. 2022;18(1):88–94
Treatment for prostate cancer impacts the health-related quality of life of men. Patient-reported outcome (PRO) data from prospective, investigator-initiated clinical trials have shown that effects are seen on the urinary, bowel, and sexual function domains and, to a lesser extent, on the general quality of life (QoL) of men.1–5 In these clinical studies, patients reported […]
The Future of Advanced Prostate Cancer Treatment
touchREVIEWS in Oncology & Haematology. 2021;17(2):56–7 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/OHR.2021.17.2.56
Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death worldwide.1 However, the emergence of novel hormonal therapies and the increasing availability of sensitive next-generation imaging techniques, such as gallium-88 prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-targeted positron emission tomography (PET), has transformed the management of advanced prostate cancer. Numerous agents, including abiraterone, enzalutamide, apalutamide, darolutamide, docetaxel, cabazitaxel, […]
New and Emerging Therapeutics for Non-metastatic Castrate-resistant Prostate Cancer
touchREVIEWS in Oncology & Haematology. 2021;17(2):107–10 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/OHR.2021.17.2.107
The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 248,530 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2021.1 For the nearly 90% of patients diagnosed with locoregional prostate cancer, the goal of treatment by surgical intervention or radiation is cure. In some cases, active surveillance is appropriate. For locoregional prostate cancers, these […]
