PSA nadir predicts biochemical and distant failures after external beam radiotherapy for prostate cancer: a multi-institutional analysis.


PURPOSE To determine the significance of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) nadir (nPSA) and the time to nPSA (T(nPSA)) in predicting biochemical or clinical disease-free survival (PSA-DFS) and distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS) in patients treated with definitive external beam radiotherapy (RT) for clinical Stage T1b-T2 prostate cancer.
