2016 AUA Meeting

[Updated: December 2, 2015] >br />
Highlights of the 2016 American Urology Association (AUA) meeting have recently been published.

Key topics relating to prostate cancer included:

- Molecular imaging. PSMA is expressed in prostate cancer and radiotracers can detect it.  The highlights include discussion of such imaging as well as the use of antibodies targeting PSMA to deliver toxic drugs directly to the cancer cells.

- Active Surveillance

- new prognostic markers aimed at distinguishing between disease having significant potential for malignancy vs. more benign disease

See the link above for the summary.
