This webinar aims to review and discuss data for liquid biopsy-based assessments as endpoints of antitumour activity in clinical trials, understand the potential and limitations of liquid biopsy-based tumour genomic profiling for patient stratification and detection of predictive biomarkers of response to therapy, and to discuss how tumour heterogeneity and evolution assessed via liquid biopsy assays may improve prostate cancer treatment strategies.

The webinar will also offer the opportunity for real-time interaction between audience and experts.
