Abstract: Currently, the basic treatment of advanced prostate cancer is still endocrine therapy, but almost all patients eventually progress to castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). In 2016, the Chinese Expert Consensus on the Diagnosis and Treatment of CRPC which aimed to help Chinese clinicians formulate treatment plans for CRPC was published. In this 2019 update, the 2016 version was updated with the aim of providing a more appropriate reference for clinical practice, standardizing CRPC patient management, and facilitating decision-making. The consensus is evidence-based and reviews the optimal therapeutic recommendations for CRPC management in China by taking into consideration the clinical characteristics of Chinese patients; drug availability, efficacy and safety; and recent advancements and developments in the international medical arena.
