Apalutamide in the treatment of a patient with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer Case report

Abstract

The treatment of patients with prostate cancer, who do not qualify for the radical therapy is based on the use of surgical or pharmacological castration methods. The effectiveness of the so-called androgen deprivation tends to decrease over time. Even in the absence of distant metastases on imaging studies, the resistance for the hormonal castration may be developed. At this moment, the use of new generation androgen receptor inhibitors may reduce the risk of metastases or death. The paper presents a case report of a patient with prostate cancer without distant metastases who started therapy with apalutamide at the moment of developing re-sistance to the pharmacological castration.
