2019 MAR 12 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Daily -- Current study results on Oncology - Prostate Cancer have been published. According to news reporting from Aurora, Colorado, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, “Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in the United States, with an estimated incidence of 164,690 cases, accounting for 9.5% of all new cancer diagnoses. The mainstay of therapy for metastatic prostate cancer involves suppressing testosterone production through androgen deprivation therapy.”
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Colorado, “However, nearly all patients on androgen deprivation therapy will develop resistance to hormone therapy. An improved understanding of the biology of castration resistance has allowed for the development of novel inhibitors of the androgen axis. Agents such as abiraterone acetate, which provides additional androgen suppression by inhibiting cytochrome P450 17A (CYP17A), have improved survival outcomes of patients with advanced prostate cancer. The longest experience with abiraterone acetate is in the metastatic castration-resistant setting. However, more recent trials have demonstrated that abiraterone acetate is an option for treatment earlier in the prostate cancer paradigm.”
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “This review will cover the current use of abiraterone acetate in combination with prednisone for the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer.”
