William K. Oh, MD, professor, Mount Sinai Hospital, discusses the current role of chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with prostate cancer.

As new agents emerge and immunotherapies develops, many patients and some oncologists are quick to dismiss chemotherapy as a treatment option, Oh explains.

Chemotherapy has had a second life, says Oh, with the success of the STAMPEDE and CHAARTED trials in metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer.

Also, there is a subset of patients, Oh suggests, who did not respond to primary androgen receptor (AR)-therapy who would be good candidates for chemotherapy, instead of a second AR-targeted therapy.
