Toward a common therapeutic framework in castration-resistant prostate cancer: A model for urologic oncology and medical oncology interaction

White R.D.V. Lara P.N.

Urologic Oncology: Seminars and Original Investigations, Volume 32, Issue 4, May 2014, Pages 380-382



The rapid evolution of palliative therapeutic choices in the last few years for patients with advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) has resulted in a dilemma currently troubling a few other epithelial malignancies: which systemic agent to choose and at what time? In addition, which specialty specifically directs the delivery of such care-Urology or Medical Oncology-has not been clearly established.


Recognizing the lack of consensus, we propose a framework for Urology and Medical Oncology interactions that is founded on models that have succeeded in the past.


This approach aims to focus the care on the patient with CRPC rather than on his physicians and promises to improve patient outcomes in this disease state.
