Genitourinary Cancers Symposium Annual Meeting Coverage
Finding contrasts with results of randomized clinical trials.
In a phase 2 trial, atezolizumab plus bevacizumab improved PFS versus sunitinib in patients with renal cell carcinoma expressing PD-L1.
Added progression-free survival and prolonged overall survival possible, according to investigators.
Researchers develop a model to predict which patients are more likely to harbor brain metastases at cancer diagnosis.
Bone surgery should be considered in patients with solitary bone metastasis and no concomitant visceral metastases, according to investigators.
Clinical or radiologic progression is less likely with abiraterone plus prednisone than cabazitaxel following first-line docetaxel, study finds.
Study finds that PSA and PSAD indicated prostate cancer above Gleason score 6 for white men only.
Survey finds that 46% of radiation oncologists have administered ART to patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer on at least one occasion.
A neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio below 3.09 is associated with significantly longer overall and disease-specific survival.
In a retrospective study, patients lived the longest if they received docetaxel followed by cabazitaxel and then abiraterone or enzalutamide.
In a survey, 3 in 5 urologists in the United States indicated they perform MRI-US guided biopsy in current practice.
From 1995 to 2011, prostate cancer deaths fell by 13.0% among Danish patients diagnosed with low-risk disease.
Study compared PCa patients who underwent surgery or radiation treatment with a matched group of non-cancer controls.
In a study, each 1-unit increment in body mass index was associated with a 16% lower mortality risk.
Black patients who met age criteria for PSA screening were 28% more likely to die of their prostate cancer than patients ineligible for screening.
