Prof Karim Fizazi, Dr Joaquin Mateo, Dr Shahneen Sandhu and Prof Bertrand Tombal

Prof Karim Fizazi (Institut Gustave Roussy, Paris, France) chairs a session with Dr Joaquin Mateo (Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology, Barcelona, Spain), Dr Shahneen Sandhu (Peter MacCallum Cancer, Melbourne, Australia) and Prof Bertrand Tombal (Université catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium) on the key developments in prostate cancer that were presented at ESMO 2019.

Prof Tombal provides a summary of the RADICALS trial which investigated the role of radiation therapy in patients with localised disease or biochemical failure.

The panel then discuss the results from the SPARTAN and STAMPEDE trials and question whether docetaxel and androgen receptor targeted agents should be both used upfront.

Dr Sandhu provides an overview of the PROfound trial, in which patients experienced an increased progression-free survival with olaparib. She also describes the results of this study as a game changer for precision medicine.

The panel conclude by discussing the use of PARP inhibitors in the treatment of prostate cancer and share their experiences with using these agents in the clinic.

This programme has been supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.
