ESMO Sarcoma and Rare Cancers 2023 | Repurposing abiraterone for the treatment of AR+ salivary gland carcinomas

Alfredo Berruti, MD, University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy, discusses the potential therapeutic efficacy of the prostate cancer drug, abiraterone, in the management of androgen receptor positive (AR+) salivary gland carcinomas. Dr Berruti goes on to explain that the mechanism of action of abiraterone works by selectively inhibiting 17 α hydroxylase leading to a reduction in both androgen and cortisol hypersecretion. This interview took place at the ESMO Sarcoma and Rare Cancers Congress 2023 in Lugano, Switzerland.
