Initial Gleason Score Does Not Impact Abiraterone (Zytiga) Benefit in Prostate Cancer

Clinical trials have shown that there is an overall survival and radiographic progression-free survival benefit derived from abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) in the treatment of men with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). A new retrospective study published online, ahead of print, shows this trend is true regardless of a man's Gleason score at diagnosis, despite [...]

Using choline-C11 PET/CT Scans To Predict Survival In Men With Recurrent Prostate Cancer

The question worth asking is if this type of scan might be able to be used for prognostic purposes. Knowing this might influence our treatment decisions as well as our basic [...]
