Andrew Armstrong MD ASCO GUSan Francisco – In the ASCO GU prostate cancer session yesterday morning one of the most interesting presentations was by Andrew J Armstrong, Associate Professor of Medicine and Surgery at the Duke Cancer Institute.

I previously referenced Dr Armstrong’s excellent education presentation at ASCO 2012 in my piece on Xconomy about the emerging challenges of prostate cancer drug development.

He’s a speaker that I particularly enjoy listening to, so my attention was immediately drawn to his presentation at ASCO GU on, “Beyond Enzalutamide and Abiraterone: What’s Next in Androgen Therapy.

Looking at this title, at first glance the question that comes to mind is do we really need new treatments that target the Androgen Receptor (AR), after all we’ve heard this week about the PREVAIL trial with enzalutamide?

Based on Dr Armstrong’s presentation the answer is a resounding yes!
