"I think that this field is going to continue to evolve, especially when we think about how to incorporate PSMA-PET findings into our clinical care," says Todd M. Morgan, MD.

In this video, Todd M. Morgan, MD, shares some final thoughts on the AUA/ASTRO/SUO guideline for salvage therapy for prostate cancer, which was recently published in the Journal of Urology.

Is there anything else you would like to add about the AUA/ASTRO/SUO guideline on salvage therapy for prostate cancer?

I think that this field is going to continue to evolve, especially when we think about how to incorporate PSMA-PET findings into our clinical care. There's still a lot for us to learn, and so a lot of our recommendations in that space tend to be lower level evidence or expert opinion. And I'll tell you, the experts on this panel are really good and incredibly thoughtful and really know the data, but I think it's important that people read the guideline and digest the guideline, but also really pay attention as this whole field continues to evolve over the next 3, 4, 5 years. We need to follow the data and the clinical trials that continue to inform us on which patients need, say, more intensified systemic therapy when they have oligometastatic disease in the setting of positive PSMA-PET, which patients maybe can benefit from metastasis-directed therapy alone. These are all important questions, and I expect us to have some guideline updates in the coming years.
