Metastatic Prostate Cancer Understanding

Metastatic Prostate Cancer: Overview

Metastatic Prostate Cancer is a type of prostate cancer which spreads to the other parts of body, i.e., cancer has metastasized. Most often, prostate cancer spreads to the bones or lymph nodes. It's also common for it to spread to the liver or lungs. It's rarer for it to move to other organs, such as the brain. Metastatic prostate cancer is an advanced form of cancer. There's no cure, but it can treat it and control it. Most men with advanced prostate cancer live a normal life for many years.

Symptoms of Metastatic Prostate Cancer
In the majority of the cases, the symptoms of prostate cancer are not apparent in the early stages of the disease. The symptoms of prostate cancer may be different for each man, and other conditions may cause some of these symptoms described below. The symptoms of Metastatic/Advanced Prostate Cancer include the following::
  • difficulty in urinating
  • bloody urine or semen
  • erectile dysfunction
  • painful ejaculation
  • swelling in pelvic area or legs
  • fatigue
  • unexplained weight loss
Stages of Metastatic Prostate Cancer
Advanced prostate cancer has several stages to get through before it can be considered advanced. Prostate cancer occurs when cells in the prostate gland mutate and start to develop abnormally. They will multiply at an uncontrolled rate. In some instances, the cells can spread to other body parts. Cancerous cells can spread through tissue, the blood, or the lymphatic system. The stages of prostate cancer range from stage I to stage IV. Stage IV is the most advanced cancer form and the topic of this article. Stage IV prostate cancer is advanced prostate cancer that has spread to pelvic lymph nodes or is blocking the ureters. The ureters are the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder.

There are two types of stage IV prostate cancer:
Stage IV D1: Prostate cancer has spread to the pelvis, lymph nodes, or surrounding organs. However, the cancer has not spread further- Stage IV D2: Cancers have spread to more distant organs, such as the spine, pelvis, ribs, or other bones. Unfortunately, stage IV D2 prostate cancer is the hardest to cure but is still treatable
Treatment of Metastatic prostate cancer
Metastatic prostate cancer includes stage 4 and recurrent disease when the cancer has spread beyond the tissues surrounding the prostate to other parts of the body. The healthcare team will suggest treatments based on needs of the patient. Hormonal therapy is the main treatment for metastatic prostate cancer. It may be given along with radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Hormonal therapy is the main treatment for metastatic prostate cancer. It may be given along with radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Systemic radiation therapy with radium-223 (Xofigo) may be offered to men who have castrate-resistant prostate cancer that has spread to the bones. Castrate-resistant prostate cancer means that it comes back or doesn’t go away after treatment with hormonal therapy. A transurethral resection may be done to help relieve urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate pressing on the urethra. Chemotherapy may be offered for metastatic prostate cancer with or without hormonal therapy. Docetaxel (Taxotere) and prednisone are most often used to treat metastatic prostate cancer. These drugs can be used to treat men with either castrate-sensitive or castrate-resistant prostate cancer.

Metastatic Prostate Cancer Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Metastatic Prostate Cancer report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I and preclinical. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Metastatic Prostate Cancer Emerging Drugs

FP-001: Foresee Pharmaceuticals FP-001 is a long-acting gonadotropin releasing hormone (Gn RH) agonist being developed as Leuprolide Mesylate for Injectable Suspension. It is under development by Foresee Pharmaceuticals and Scino Pharm Joint Venture and is currently in Phase III stage for the treatment of Prostate Cancer. The drug candidate is being developed in different dosage formulations and depending on them, they are in different stagesofdevelopment.

Relugolix: Myovant Biosciences Relugolix (Pre-registration) is the Myovant’s lead product candidate and is an orally available small molecule, non-peptide gonadotropin-releasing hormone (Gn RH or luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH)) antagonist, with potential antineoplastic activity. Relugolix competitively binds to and blocks the GnRH receptor in the anterior pituitary gland, which both prevents GnRH binding to the GnRH receptor and inhibits the secretion and release of both luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulatinghormone(FSH).

Atezolizumab: Genentech Atezolizumab (Tecentriq, Phase III) is a novel, anti-PDL1 targeted prescription cancer immunotherapy. It is monoclonal antibody derived from the Chinese hamster ovary cells by recombinant DNA technology. Atezolizumab works by binding to PD-L1 receptor expressed on tumor cells and tumor-in?ltrating immune cells and thereby leads to the prevention of binding of PD-L1 receptor to other proteins namely as B7.1 and PD-1. This process leads to the release of PD-1/ PD-L1 mediated inhibition of the immune response, and also causes the activation of anti-tumor immune response without inducing the antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC). As stated by the company, this mode of action may eliminate the stop sign that gives the signals to inactivate T-cells. Tecentriq may also affect normalcells.

Darolutamide: Bayer Darolutamide (Phase III) is an orally administered second generation androgen receptor (AR) antagonist that has a unique chemical structure designed to block the growth of cancer cells through binding to the AR with high affinity and inhibiting the receptor function. In preclinical studies, darolutamide and its main circulating metabolite are active also in known AR mutants (ex W742L, F877L), and have been found to have negligible blood-brain barrierpenetration.

DCVAC/PCa: Sotio DCVAC is an autologous immunotherapy manufactured from a patient’s white blood cells. It is composed of autologous Polyinosinic-Polycytidylic activated dendritic cells pulsed with killed LNCaP prostate cancer cell line. Sotio is currently leading following trials for the treatment of Metastatic prostatecancer:
  • Phase III: Randomized, Double Blind, Multicenter, Parallel-group, Phase III Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of DCVAC/PCa Versus Placebo in Men with Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Eligible for 1st Line Chemotherapy
  • Phase I/II: Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Immune Activation of the Combination of DCVAC/PCa, and ONCOS-102, in Men with Advanced Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer
Ipatasertib: Roche Ipatasertib is an orally administered small molecule, potent, novel, selective ATP-competitive, selective AKT inhibitor which is designed to target and bind to the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-binding pocket of the 3 activated isoforms of AKT, potentially inhibiting downstream signaling. Ipatasertib is being investigated in combination with various treatment modalities (e.g., anti-hormonal therapy, chemotherapy). It acts as serine/threonine protein kinase Akt (protein kinase B) with potential antineoplastic activity. Currently, Roche is investigating ipatasertib as part of a combination with Zytiga (abiraterone acetate; Johnson & Johnson/AstraZeneca) in asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic, previously untreated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancerpatients.
