PracticeUpdateGuideline Updated for Initial Management of Advanced Prostate Cancer

A recent guideline update published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology offers updated recommendations for managing noncastrate advanced, recurrent, or metastatic prostate cancer. The authors recommend five separate standards of care, including docetaxel, abiraterone, enzalutamide, apalutamide, or darolutamide, all administered with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). Triplet therapy is superior to doublet therapy, and there are no recommendations for the use of any of these agents in any other combination or series apart from the triplet therapies of docetaxel plus abiraterone plus ADT and docetaxel plus darolutamide plus ADT. Docetaxel plus ADT should be offered to patients with metastatic noncastrate prostate cancer with high-volume disease who are unwilling or unable to receive triplet therapy. Triplet therapy should be offered to patients with de novo metastatic noncastrate prostate cancer with high-volume disease who are being offered ADT plus docetaxel chemotherapy, with significant overall survival and radiographic progression-free survival benefits. Overall, patients should be informed that doublet therapy (docetaxel plus ADT) has been proven inferior to triplet therapy such as abiraterone and prednisone plus docetaxel plus ADT.
