The course of Jim Kiefert’s life took an unexpected turn 26 years ago during a routine physical examination. Along with the usual blood work, his doctor offered to perform a test that was new back then, the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, which measures the PSA level in the blood and can, if the level is high, indicate the presence of prostate cancer. Novel drugs, drug sequences and combinations have improved the outcome of prostate cancer in recent years. The latest approvals include abiraterone acetate, enzalutamide and apalutamide which target androgen receptor (AR) signaling, radium dichloride for reduction of bone metastases, sipuleucel-T immunotherapy and taxane-based by:
