May 18: Your Pathology Report: What You Have to Know – DVD featuring Dr. Jonathan Epstein
This DVD is of the presentation delivered by Dr. Jonathan Epstein at the 2017 Prostate Cancer Research Institute Conference. Dr. Epstein, from John Hopkins, is probably the foremost prostate cancer pathologist in the USA, and perhaps the world. He explains how the Gleason grading system has changed over time, and how pathologists have proposed a 1 through 5 grading system that is more descriptive of the risk they expect for the patient and is easier to understand by the patients.
June 1: Advanced Prostate Cancer and Clinical Trials – DVD featuring Dr. Luke Nordquist
This is another presentation from the 2017 Prostate Cancer Research Institute Conference. Dr. Nordquist, director of the Urology Cancer Center and GU Research Center in Omaha, Nebraska, treats prostate cancer almost exclusively. His talk reviews current treatments, discusses the roles the various elements of the immune system play, what vaccines are available, what the process is for various kinds of clinical trials, and finally, he reviews the new field of precision medicines and how genetic testing for men can determine what new medicines would be most effective for their treatment.
