The Phase III Protocol of Androgen Suppression (AS) and 3DCTR/ IMRT Vs AS and 3DCTR/IMRT Followed by Chemotherapy With Docetaxel and Prednisone for Localized, High-Risk, Prostate Cancer (RTOG 0521) trial (4) randomized 562 men with high-risk localized prostate cancer treated with radiation and two years of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), with and without the addition of adjuvant docetaxel (six cycles) and prednisone starting four weeks after radiation.
Since their cancers had reappeared, the men had also been given androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).
They found that for the 8-year period studied, 42% of localized prostate cancer patients aged 65 and older underwent radiation therapy, 21% had a radical prostatectomy, 17% had primary androgen deprivation therapy, and 20% had expectant management.
ADXS-PSA was tested alone or in combination with KEYTRUDA in an advanced and heavily pretreated patient population who had progressed on androgen deprivation therapy.
The trial assessed the efficacy and safety of the product in comparison to placebo in over 1,200 men with NM-CRPC who had a rapidly increasing PSA while being subjected to continuous androgen deprivation therapy.
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) plus docetaxel (D) versus ADT alone for hormone-naive metastatic prostate cancer (PCa): Long-term analysis of the GETUG-AFU 15 phase III trial.
Prof Risbridger said: "It not only inhibits the growth of prostate cancer but also kills off cancer cells that are resistant to conventional treatment such as androgen deprivation therapy, more commonly known as castration therapy and does so using a mechanism that is different to castration."
ORLANDO -- With increasing use of androgen deprivation hormone therapy for men with prostate cancer come growing concerns about an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular morbidity, and other adverse treatment effects.
Older men who received androgen deprivation therapy had a 3% risk of dying from cardiac causes at 5 years, significantly higher than the 0.9% risk in similarly aged men who did not receive hormone therapy, reported Dr.
Data showed that treatment with Erleada (apalutamide) significantly reduced the risk of prostate specific antigen (PSA) progression in patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) who had a rapidly rising PSA while receiving continuous androgen deprivation therapy.
The results show that the use of XTANDI plus androgen deprivation therapy significantly reduced the risk of developing metastases or death by 71% compared to ADT alone.
