Progression to castrate resistant prostate cancer for men with advanced prostate cancer PC results after the initiation of androgen deprivation therapy ADT. Oneunderutilized therapeutic strategy that has the potential to dramatically improve outcomes is eradicating the persistent cancer cells that remain after ADT and likely play a key role in the development of castration-resistant PC. The initiation of ADT induces susceptibilities in PC cells that make them amenable to synergistic treatment and improved cell killing.
