What’s being presented at the AUA in May: Part IV


There are numerous sessions at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association that focus on basic research and technical topics. A few of our readers may be interested in a very few of these presentations and posters, but the vast majority of these presentations and posters are about very early stage scientific research.

For those who really are interested in scanning quickly through the titles of posters and presentations at these various sessions, here is the relevant list:

  • A session entitled “Prostate Cancer: Basic Research I” includes a total of 20 moderated poster presentations.
  • A session entitled “Prostate Cancer: Basic Research II” includes another 20 moderated poster presentations.
  • A session entitled “Prostate Cancer: Basic Research III” includes 20 more moderated poster presentations.
  • A session entitled “Prostate Cancer: Basic Science IV” also includes 20 more moderated posters, among which one (by Adam et al.; abstract no. MP49-13) provides confirmatory evidence of the importance of a tertiary Gleason pattern of 5 as a prognostic factor in prediction of biochemical recurrence in patients with a  Gleason score of 3 + 4 = 7 or 4 + 3 = 7 after radical prostatectomy.
  • A session entitled “Prostate Cancer: Basic Science V” again includes 20 moderated poster presentations.
  • The session entitled “Novel Imaging/Prostate Oncology/Robotics” includes 16 video presentations, two of which (by Le et al., abstract no. V6-06; and by Logan et al., abstract no. V6-11) deal with the clinical application of MRI/TRUS fusion-guided biopsy, but unfortunately the videos themselves are not available on line.
