GURC recommends consultation with either a urooncologist and/or medical oncologist for staging and prognostic assessment.
(3) GURC suggests consideration of a similar set of poor prognostic factors including elevated LDH, widespread and/or visceral metastasis, poor performance status (ECOG PS >2), low hemoglobin, short response (<12 months) to initial ADT, clinical symptoms, elevated alkaline phosphatase, and small cell pathology.
Therefore, GURC recommends referral to a medical oncologist or multi-disciplinary genitourinary team for monitoring and management.
(4,8) GURC recommends ARAT therapy alone for first-line mCRPC, keeping in mind that treatment strategy may vary depending on prior therapy received for mCSPC.
GURC recommends ARAT therapy first-line for the majority of mCRPC patients, although patients with poor prognosis should be referred to a medical oncologist or multi-disciplinary genitourinary team for monitoring and management
(5,6,8,43) GURC recommendations take into account available evidence, patterns of practice and access to therapy in providing sequencing options following first-line ARAT therapy (Figure 1B); an individualized approach to treatment sequencing is encouraged, along with special consideration of disease burden, symptomatology, prior therapy, drug eligibility and patient preference.
For patients with visceral metastases and/or bulky nodes >3 cm following first-line ARAT therapy, GURC recommends docetaxel followed by cabazitaxel or ARAT.
GURC recommends an individualized approach to treatment sequencing for later lines of mCRPC therapy, which may include docetaxel, radium-223, ARAT, and cabazitaxel
