Decrease in lean body mass in men with prostate cancer receiving androgen deprivation therapy: mechanism and biomarkers.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To elucidate the mechanism of the androgen deprivation therapy (ADT)-related decrease in lean body mass (LBM). MATERIALS AND METHODS The LBM and blood samples were studied before and after 6 months of ADT in 72 patients with localized prostate cancer. The LBM was assessed using a foot-to-foot bioelectrical impedance analyzer. RESULTS Before… (More)
