Novel Approaches in the Pharmacotherapy of Skeletal-related Events in Metastatic Castrate-resistant Prostate Cancer
Spencer S et al. – Biphosphonates have long been the standard of care for antiresorptive treatment of bone metastases from castrate–resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Although the indication has historically been mostly palliative, response rates in skeletal–related events (SRE) remain low. Denosumab has been shown to be effective in prolonging time to first SRE in clinical settings, however, critical questions remain on its ability to affect bone metastases in mCRPC.
