Over the last decade, we have witnessed a revolution in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) which is an advanced and lethal form of prostate cancer. A deeper understanding of its underlying biology has led to the development of compounds targeting the androgen signaling pathway and the immune system, as well as taxanes and radiopharmaceuticals.

Despite these advances in more effectively managing mCRPC, it remains a fatal disease resulting in significant morbidity and mortality globally. Arguably, the most critical need in drug development against CRPC is treatment molecular stratification. In parallel efforts must continue to center on identification of robust predictive biomarkers of response and the development of targeted anti-cancer therapies. The advent of these novel treatments has driven tumor evolution towards a shift in the genomic landscape observed in patients with advanced disease.

We embrace a purely comprehensive and integrative approach to research. As such, our group encompasses molecular biology, tumor genomics, clinical trials and computational sciences in order to develop precision medicine strategies to treat advanced prostate cancer based on predictive biomarkers of response.

Defects in DNA repair genes -particularly in double-strand breaks- are present in 20-25% of mCRPC cases, and allow us to study how we can deliver more precise cancer treatment and care. Some of these mutations have prognostic and predictive implications which are crucial in delivering on the promise of personalized medicine in oncology.

We use a range of tools (CRISPR gene editing, shRNA, siRNA and pharmacological inhibitors) to induce loss-of-function of key DNA repair genes in prostate cancer in-vitro models to establish how tumors adapt their DNA repair machinery, and how this is affected by modulation of oncogenic AR signaling. Our interest in cell cycle modulation by DNA damage has also led us to study the senescence-like phenotype observed after exposure to targeted agents, which we hypothesize is a mechanism of drug resistance, and how to target it therapeutically.

Aiming at translating our findings into benefits for patients as rapidly as possible, we study the same genomic and transcriptomic signatures in biopsies from patients with metastatic prostate cancer. In parallel, we collect longitudinal liquid biopsies to study how a tumor evolves during response and progression to targeted agents.

Our research focuses on optimal patient stratification strategies for clinical care, with particular emphasis on combining DNA repair targeting agents with those that inhibit androgen signaling.

STRATEGIC GOALS

  • To establish a clinically relevant re-classification of metastatic prostate cancer integrating genotypic and phenotypic data with functional assays.
  • Develop prostate cancer molecular stratification assays based on tumor tissue and circulating biomarkers.
  • Optimize the combination of DNA repair-targeting drugs with androgen receptor inhibitors.
  • Build a precision medicine core for prostate cancer patients treated at the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital (HUVH).

 


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Launch of the IRONMAN Registry in Spain. This project is driven by academic team-science and collects clinical data and biospecimens for correlative analysis from patients with advanced prostate cancer.
  • Participation in the PROfound study, the first-ever positive biomarker-driven clinical trial in prostate cancer, which has confirmed the efficacy of PARP inhibitors in DNA repair defective prostate cancer.
  • The setting up of our first investigator-initiated clinical trial co-targeting AR and PARP in metastatic hormone-naïve prostate cancer; the study will initiate recruitment in 2020.
  • We were granted the 2019 FERO Foundation Award, to develop liquid biopsy assays in advanced prostate cancer.
