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


, : Extended field radiation therapy vs. delayed hormonal therapy in node positive prostatic adeno carcinoma. Journal of Urology 127(5): 935-937

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.
