ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Two prostate cancer studies – one examining the poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor talazoparib plus the androgen receptor inhibitor enzalutamide and one on plant-based diets and disease progression – will be highlighted in the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Genitourinary Cancers Symposium’s official Press Program. Studies featured in the Press Program are among the nearly 800 abstracts that will be presented at the Symposium.  

The 2023 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, taking place February 16-18 in San Francisco, CA, and online, will bring together oncology professionals from around the globe for presentations and discussions surrounding the latest innovative findings in genitourinary cancer treatment, research, and care. 

The majority of abstracts will be publicly released online at 5:00 PM (ET) on Monday, February 13, and the embargo will lift at that time. Late-Breaking Abstracts (LBAs) will be released at 7:00 AM (PT)/10:00 AM (ET) on their day of presentation at the meeting. The following abstracts will be highlighted in press releases as a part of the Press Program:  

  • TALAPRO-2: Phase 3 study of talazoparib (TALA) + enzalutamide (ENZA) versus placebo (PBO) + ENZA as first-line (1L) treatment in patients (pts) with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). (Abstract LBA17)
  • Associations between plant-based diets and risk of disease progression in men with prostate cancer.  (Abstract 392)
