William K. Oh, MD, chief, Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology, professor of Medicine and Urology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, discusses sequencing of new therapies for castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

According to Oh, one of the issues about the sequencing of new therapies for CRPC is the lack of evidence to support when a patient should receive chemotherapy or AR-targeted therapy in relation to other treatments.

An electronic medical records system checked 4000 men who had received chemotherapy or AR-targeted therapy and had a short duration of response in the first-line setting. The focus was on the patients who were primarily resistant to AR-targeted therapy and the outcome based on whether they used chemotherapy or a second AR-targeted therapy in the second-line setting.
