Extended field radiation therapy vs. delayed hormonal therapy in node positive prostatic adeno carcinoma

Journal of Urology 127(5): 935-937

Extended field radiation therapy vs. delayed hormonal therapy in node positive prostatic adeno carcinoma

The disease control and survival advantage of either extended field megavoltage irradiation or delayed androgen ablation in a randomized [human] clinical trial were determined. Comparison of the 2 treatments, using either time to 1st evidence of treatment failure or survival, demonstrates an advantage to extended field radiation.
