Leonard G. Gomella, MD, professor and chair of the Department of Urology at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Kimmel Cancer Center, discusses the clinical guidelines released by the American Urological Association (AUA) at its 2013 Annual Meeting.
The new guidelines for patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) are an important highlight from the AUA meeting, Gomella states. These guidelines include recommendations on PSA screening and the use of radiation therapy following radical prostatectomy. The guidelines on PSA screening will likely continue to fuel controversy on this topic, Gomella expects.
Overall, Gomella feels, the topics included in these guidelines will attract a great deal of national attention, since they address many of the challenges that physicians are currently facing in the treatment of men with prostate cancer.
