Dr. Saad on ARASENS trial: “We now have evidence that we can do better in lethal prostate cancer”

“I think we need to change the mindset that chemotherapy is a bad thing. It is a very good thing when given appropriately and when patients are more likely to get long-term benefit,” says Fred Saad, MD, FRCS.

In this video, Fred Saad, MD, FRCS, discusses the takeaways of the study, “Overall survival with darolutamide versus placebo in combination with androgen-deprivation therapy and docetaxel for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer in the phase 3 ARASENS trial,” which was presented at the 2022 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium. Saad is a professor and chief of urology, director of GU oncology, and Raymond Garneau Chair in prostate cancer at the University of Montreal Hospital Center (CHUM), as well as the director of prostate cancer research at the Montreal Cancer Institute/CRCHUM in Quebec.
