Novel Therapeutic Strategies for Advanced Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer continues to kill over 10,000 patients annually in the UK. Survival outcomes have extended in recent years through introduction of novel treatment strategies but in general, these have been modest gains. Rapid development in our understanding of disease biology, clonal evolution and intra-tumour heterogeneity are providing promise that we can develop more rationally targeted therapeutic strategies. This seminar will explore current examples of these approaches in clinical development.
