Urothelial Cancer: the present and the future
“We need to keep talking about bladder cancer, working together and building new networks.” Prof. Robert Jones summarizes the issues in the current landscape plus key learnings and future innovations presented by the oncology experts at KEYFOCUS Bladder Cancer 2018.
The role of chemotherapy in an era of immunotherapies
With the rise of novel immunotherapies, the role of chemotherapy is being challenged as we look for a solution that can improve outcomes with minimal toxicity. Dr Maria de Santis believes that although the landscape is changing, chemotherapy still plays a vital role in advanced urothelial carcinoma.
Cystectomy or radiotherapy? New data for MIBC
While cystectomy has become the standard therapy in the treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer, radiotherapy is being seen as a potential option owing to its low toxicity, efficacy in disease control, while maintaining quality of life. Prof. Robert Huddart presents the case for radiotherapy.
Rare bladder cancers: challenges & issues
Rare bladder and urinary tract tumours have a scarcity of robust efficacy data, and a lack of consensus on treatment approach can prove challenging for oncolologists. Prof. Syed Hussain discusses how greater national and international collaboration can help when striving to improve treatment outcomes.
Controversial issues in bladder cancer: the experts’ discussion
Led by Prof. Robert Jones, Prof. Winald Gerritsen, Dr Simon Crabb and Mr Hugh Mostafid discuss key issues in bladder cancer management and treatment, including diagnostic pathways, multi-disciplinary approaches, and selection criteria for immunotherapy, radiotherapy, or surgery.
