Hormone Therapy Shows Little Benefit Against Prostate Cancer
Date:7/8/2008

e was no increase in 10-year overall survival rates among men taking PADT compared with men undergoing conservative management.

In fact, 19.9 percent of those taking PADT died of their prostate cancer within 10 years, compared with only 17.4 of those on the waiting approach.

A second study, this one presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology Lugano conference, found that the number of prostate tumor cells circulating in a patient's bloodstream can predict how effective the treatment is. On average, the fewer the circulating tumor cells, said researchers from the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust in the United Kingdom, the longer the survival.
