April Date:
April 2017

Gain new key opinion leader (KOL) insights on the latest events happening in prostate cancer. Topics covered include expert opinions on the two oral PARP inhibitors (AstraZeneca’s Lynparza [olaparib] and Clovis Oncology’s rucaparib) that are in Phase III development for men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). KOLs also provide their first insights on the IMbassador250 Phase III study that was initiated in January 2017 investigating Roche’s anti-programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) checkpoint inhibitor Tecentriq (atezolizumab) in combination with Xtandi (enzalutamide) in patients with mCRPC. With Bavarian Nordic’s PROSPECT study due to complete in 2017, KOLs also discuss their expectations for the highly-anticipated study investigating the vaccine PROSTVAC (rilimogene galvacirepvec-rilimogene glafolivec) (PSA-TRICOM) in prostate cancer.

  • Where will immunotherapy combinations be best utilised in patients with prostate cancer?
  • What are KOL expectations for Bavarian Nordic’s PROSPECT study with the PROSTVAC vaccine?
