Published: Friday, Sep 29, 2017



Rahul Aggarwal, MD, assistant professor of Hematology/Oncology, Director of STAND Clinic, UCSF Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses androgen deprivation therapy for patients with prostate cancer.

According to Aggarwal, we are moving away from a one-size-fits-all approach for androgen deprivation therapy to one that is adaptive for a patient’s specific disease state. Physicians are focused on the recent data in regards to abiraterone (Zytiga) and AR-targeted therapies.
