Investigators assessed the prevalence and risk factors of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) in urologic patients from the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area.

Satraplatin Significantly Improves Progression Free Survival (PFS) and Pain Control in Patients with Advanced Hormone-Refractory Prostate Cancer (HRPC): Preliminary Results From the Phase III SPARC Trial [1014]
Authors: Daniel P Petrylak, M.D., et al

Pain control constitutes a major clinical challenge in the treatment of metastatic Hormone-Refractory Prostate Cancer (HRPC) and is a relevant therapeutic goal in this population. Satraplatin (S) is a novel oral platinum compound with demonstrated antitumor activity in a variety of tumors, including HRPC. The SPARC trial is a large, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase III study, evaluating S in combination with prednisone (P) for the treatment of HRPC patients who have failed one prior chemotherapy regimen. The study found that oral satraplatin is well tolerated and has clinically relevant activity in patients with metastatic HRPC.
