TITLE: The changing landscape: Understanding non-metastatic (m0) castration resistant prostate cancer

LENGTH: 23 mins
OVERVIEW: This presentation takes a closer look at a critical time within the prostate cancer disease journey between the localized and advanced disease state. Metastasis, when the cancer spreads to a different part of the body, is currently targeted by multiple treatment options available in the market. With the recent SPARTAN and PROSPER clinical trials, there are new drug developments that may target the non-metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer window to further delay metastases. Key tools and imaging options in detecting metastases are also discussed.
SPEAKER: Dr. Robert Hamilton is an uro-oncologic surgeon specializing in prostate cancer at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. He has expertise in minimally invasive surgeries, including robotic surgery.  Dr. Hamilton sees patients at all different stages of prostate cancer from those at risk to this with early diagnoses to advanced disease.  His research interests in prostate cancer include the study of statins and metformin in prostate cancer prevention; whether genetic markers can be used to predict who will benefit from chemoprevention; and biomarkers of prostate cancer aggressiveness.

What is an Expert Angle On-Demand Webinar?

An Expert Angle on-demand webinar is a pre-recorded presentation held over the Internet that is accessible for viewing at any time. Questions can be submitted to the speaker up to two weeks following the launch date. All on-demand webinars are hosted on a platform called GoToWebinar.
Once you register, you can begin watching the webinar right away. Since this format is intended to simulate a live webinar, viewers will not have the ability to pause, rewind or fast-forward. However, if viewers would like to re-watch a webinar, you can access it again using the same registration link presented above. If you encounter any technical issue, please email:
