Dr. Cooperberg on Earlier Treatment With Sipuleucel-T

Matthew Cooperberg, MD
Published: Saturday, Feb 16, 2013

Matthew Cooperberg, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Urology; Epidemiology & Biostatistics, University of California, San Francisco, Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses the earlier administration of treatment with sipuleucel-T (Provenge) for men with prostate cancer.

Cooperberg believes that immunotherapies, such as sipuleucel-T, are best administered earlier in the treatment paradigm when the immune system is stronger and less cancer cells are present.

To examine this, a study conducted at the University of California, San Francisco looked at the neoadjuvant administration of sipuleucel-T. The primary endpoints for this study were immune parameters that related to immune activation by sipuleucel-T. Cooperberg believes that from a mechanistic standpoint, sipuleucel-T may be most effective when given as a neoadjuvant therapy in prostate cancer.
