Description:
Prostate cancer is the most diagnosed non-cutaneous cancer in men in the US and remains the second leading cause of cancer deaths among American men, with an estimated 174,000 new cases diagnosed in 2020. Prostate cancer deaths are typically the result of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), and most patients will eventually experience disease progression despite castration, with a median duration of response of 1224 months. Fortunately for these patients, novel therapies have changed the treatment paradigm, as recent data has shown that newer options, including PARP inhibitors, greatly improves outcomes.
