“We’re very pleased that the vast majority of our in-person programs have decided to stay on for the virtual meeting,” said Keith D. Price, CEM, senior manager of sponsorships and exhibits at AUA. “It's important for companies to be able to present their new products, services and research at AUA. It critical to the advancement of urology and, ultimately, to the improvement of patient outcomes.”

Topics of discussion will be as varied as the thought leaders presenting. Antares Pharma, for example, plans to highlight clinical data and discuss case studies related to the treatment of nocturia due to nocturnal polyuria. Antares Pharma is one of five newcomers to the 2021 ICU Theater.
