Richard Harris, MD, of UroPartners, says there are many exciting advancements currently happening in the field of prostate cancer. Harris shared his thoughts during an interview with OncLive at the 2016 LUGPA Annual Meeting.

Additionally, many new therapies are in clinical development for advanced prostate cancer. In this space, many clinical trials are looking at PARP inhibitors, which have a very bright future as far as helping manage certain forms of prostate cancer, Harris says.
