Intro to Treatment of Patients with Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Androgen Deprivation Therapy

Anna Ferrari, MD, Professor and Co-Director GU Research at NYU Langone Medical Center, discusses Androgen Deprivation Therapy. Androgen Deprivation Therapy is the gold standard for men with metastatic prostate cancer in addition to docetaxel based therapy.

However, it has limitations, and is not curative and is associated with the emergence of resistance and progression of disease.
