OncoReview 2023-09-11T09:26:39+02:00 Marcin Kuzma Open Journal Systems <p>The main area of <em>OncoReview’s </em>&nbsp;scientific mission is the emerging field of interdisciplinary oncology, with particular emphasis on cardio-oncology. Scientific papers published in the journal concern modern diagnostic and therapeutic methods used in this population of patients, as well as all adverse events related to anticancer treatment. Objective assessment of the benefits and risks of new oncological drugs is a unique benefit of the published works.&nbsp;<br><span lang="en-GB"><br></span><span lang="en-GB"><strong>e-ISSN: </strong>2450-6125&nbsp; <strong>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; DOI: </strong>10.24292/01.OR<br><br><strong>Indexed in:&nbsp;</strong></span><strong>SCOPUS</strong>: SJR = 0.125; SNIP = 0.099<br><span lang="en-GB">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Polish Journals Master List:&nbsp;<strong>20 points</strong>&nbsp;<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Index Copernicus: 116.25&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Google Scholar<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Polish Medical Bibliography</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Prostate cancer in an elderly patient with a history of comorbidities 2023-09-11T09:26:36+02:00 Adriana Stryczyńska-Mirocha Martyna Mirocha <p>Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Poland. The choice of treatment method depends on many factors, including the stage of the disease, the patient's age, life expectancy, the presence of comorbidities and the general condition of the patient. Hormone therapy is one of the basic methods of prostate cancer treatment, both in adjuvant and palliative treatment. Castration-resistant prostate cancer is an incurable disease. However, the introduction of new hormonal drugs to therapy significantly extended the survival time of patients with relatively low harmfulness of therapy.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Apalutamid for treatment of nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostste cancer – case study 2023-09-11T09:26:33+02:00 Bożena Sikora-Kupis <p>A special form of prostate cancer is non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Patients with this form have rising prostate-specific antigen and castrate testosterone levels, with no radiological findings of metastatic disease on computed tomography and bone scan. The phase III trials demonstrated apalutamide, darolutamide or enzalutamide to be associated with a significantly longer median metastasis-free survival. The featured description presents one case of man with non-metastatic castration- resistant prostate cancer who was treated with apalutamide.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Apalutamide in the treatment of non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer in an elderly patient with multiple comorbidities 2023-09-11T09:26:39+02:00 Katarzyna Liśkiewicz <p>Prostate cancer has been the most common malignant tumor in men in Poland since 2016 and is the second cause of death in this group of patients. The basic method of treatment in patients with advanced prostate cancer is androgen deprivation therapy, however, over time, the tumor evolves into a castration-resistant form, which poses a significant threat to the patient's life. This article presents a case of an elderly patient with internal diseases, who in the castration-resistant stage, was treated with a new generation androgen receptor blocker – apalutamide – in the first line of systemic treatment.</p> 2023-03-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Apalutamide as a therapeutic option in case of local failure in the nmCRPC 2023-09-11T09:26:27+02:00 Magdalena Stankiewicz <p>Apalutamide is a non-steroidal selective androgen receptor inhibitor approved for the treatment of high-risk non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer and metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. The paper describes a case of a patient diagnosed with prostate cancer with a long-term course of the disease. The patient was diagnosed with a non-metastatic castration-resistant stage 18 years after primary treatment. Systemic treatment with apalutamide was recommended. Initially, the treatment was carried out as part of the extended access to apalutamide program and from March 2022 as part of the B.56 drug program. The study presents the effectiveness and safety of the therapy in a 12-month follow-up period and discusses controversial aspects of the patient's previous treatments.</p> 2023-04-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Apalutamide in the treatment of a patient with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer 2023-09-11T09:26:31+02:00 Robert Dziura <p>The treatment of patients with prostate cancer, who do not qualify for the radical therapy is based on the use of surgical or pharmacological castration methods. The effectiveness of the so-called androgen deprivation tends to decrease over time. Even in the absence of distant metastases on imaging studies, the resistance for the hormonal castration may be developed. At this moment, the use of new generation androgen receptor inhibitors may reduce the risk of metastases or death. The paper presents a case report of a patient with prostate cancer without distant metastases who started therapy with apalutamide at the moment of developing re-sistance to the pharmacological castration.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Apalutamide as a new option for postponing metastatic disease in hormone-resistant patients with biochemical recurrence in prostate cancer 2023-09-11T09:26:25+02:00 Bartosz Dąbek <p>Treatment of non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer is a radically new option for cancer patients. Novel anti-hormonal therapy not only improves metastasis free survival but overall survival times and positively impacts quality of life. This case shows how apalutamide lowered tPSA level and postponed metastatic disease.</p> 2023-04-01T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Prostate cancer in clinical practice.

The choice of treatment method depends on many factors: the patient’s age, other patient’s diseases, psychophysical status and expected survival time. Hormonotherapy plays very important role in patients with no possible radical treatment. New therapies apply in patients with castration-resistant metastatic prostate cancer. First registered drug in patients with biochemical progression without metastases is apalutamide.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) Plasma cell myeloma as one of the causes of bone pain in family medicine 2023-09-11T09:26:19+02:00 Grzegorz Kade Maciej Michalak Bartosz Kade Sebastian Spaleniak Agnieszka Podgórska Janusz Hałka <p>The article draws attention to the need to maintain oncological vigilance in the daily practice of a family doctor.
