Extended field radiation therapy versus delayed hormonal therapy in node positive prostatic adenocarcinoma.

Abstract

This study was undertaken to determine the disease control and survival advantage of either extended field megavoltage irradiation or delayed androgen ablation in a randomized clinical trial. Comparison of the 2 treatments, using either time-to-first evidence of treatment failure or survival, demonstrates an advantage to extended field radiation.
