Fascinating report/study making salient points on the continued need to characterize patients’ neoplasm from a genomic standpoint and the impact of direct management of oligometastatic disease in patients with high-risk mutational signature.

The initial STOMP and ORIOLE trial reports suggested that metastasis-directed therapy (MDT) in oligometastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (omCSPC) was associated with improved treatment outcomes. Here, we present long-term outcomes of MDT in omCSPC by pooling STOMP and ORIOLE and assess the ability of a high-risk mutational signature to risk stratify outcomes after MDT. The primary end point was progression-free survival (PFS) calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method. High-risk mutations were defined as pathogenic somatic mutations within ATMBRCA1/2Rb1, or TP53. The median follow-up for the whole group was 52.5 months. Median PFS was prolonged with MDT compared with observation (pooled hazard ratio [HR], 0.44; 95% CI, 0.29 to 0.66; P value < .001), with the largest benefit of MDT in patients with a high-risk mutation (HR high-risk: 0.05; HR no high-risk: 0.42; P value for interaction: .12). Within the MDT cohort, the PFS was 13.4 months in those without a high-risk mutation, compared with 7.5 months in those with a high-risk mutation (HR, 0.53; 95% CI, 0.25 to 1.11; P = .09). Long-term outcomes from the only two randomized trials in omCSPC suggest a sustained clinical benefit to MDT over observation. A high-risk mutational signature may help risk stratify treatment outcomes after MDT.

Although not a practice changing study, this study makes a few points that may be seen in future studies.  In the setting of biochem-recurrent prostate cancer after RP, novel anti-androgen agents may replace ADT in combination with salvage XRT as they appear to be active and less toxic than traditional ADT.   Low/Intermediate risk patients are likely of benefit with median PSA at accrual of 0.3 in this study, not unlike other similar studies.   The role of combination anti-hormone therapy + salvage radiation seems to be solidifying.

Another use of genomic testing in prostate cancer, pts with high risk mutation may need systemic therapy  in addition to oligometastatic stereotactic radiotherapy, well informed patients with no high risk mutation signature may elect to go under surveillance to avoid side effects of androgen deprivation therapy,  this also emphasizes the importance of genomic testing in personalizing pt’s care.

Low Risk of Cardiovascular Events With ADT for Prostate Cancer; Higher Risk in Older Men

The risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) following the initiation of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in men with prostate cancer is higher for older men compared with their younger counterparts. However, the overall MACE risk at 1 year in all age groups starting ADT is 1% or less, which is much lower than previously published reports. The findings, gleaned from analyses of U.S. electronic medical records, were presented during the virtual National Comprehensive Cancer Network 2022 Annual Meeting.
