New study: adjuvant radiation therapy saves lives vs. salvage

A major new study adds to several other studies that show that, for men with adverse pathology, adjuvant radiation (ART) within 3 to 6 months of prostatectomy saves more lives compared to waiting until the PSA rises into the range of 0.1 to 0.5 ng/ml — salvage radiation (SRT). 1,149 more words

When can ADT be safely avoided with salvage radiation therapy?

Two randomized clinical trials (GETUG-AFU-16 and RTOG 9601) proved that adding at least some ADT to salvage radiation (SRT) improved outcomes. “Some ADT” was 6 months of goserelin acetate in the GETUG-AFU-16 trial, and 2 years of bicalutamide in the RTOG 9601 trial. 406 more words
