ASCO GUCS 2019.png

Members of the CARE™ Genitourinary Faculty attended the American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GUCS 2019) on February 14th to 16th 2019 in San Francisco, California. 

The theme of this year’s ASCO GU Cancers Symposium was “Translating evidence into multi-disciplinary care”. In keeping with the theme of the symposium, this CARE™ conference report includes content and commentary from specialists in CARE™ urology, medical oncology and radiation oncology Faculties.  

While the 2019 ASCO GUCS featured coverage on a large spectrum of GU cancers, this report focuses on prostate cancer (PC) and Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC).

This report also features the CARE™ Treatment Algorithm for Localized and Advanced Prostate Cancer. This guidance has been updated to reflect new treatment approaches and options.

The CARE™ Prostate Cancer Treatment Algorithm includes guidance/considered approaches for managing nmCRPC. 

Members of the CARE™ GU Faculty will meet at the upcoming ASCO Symposium (May 31st to June 4th  2019, Chicago, Illinois), as well as CUA (June 29th to July 1st, Quebec City) to further refine and update the algorithm.
