North Shore-LIJ Offering New Radium Treatment for Prostate Cancer Patients
Date:7/30/2013

system has two years’ experience treating patients with Radium-223. In fact, it is one of the first health care providers in the New York metropolitan area to offer treatment with Radium-223.

“Radium-223 is expected to define a new standard of care in the treatment of patients with metastatic prostate cancer and we are excited to be able to offer it as a treatment option to our patients,” noted Louis Potters, MD, chair of radiation medicine.

“After treatment, I am no longer in pain and I’m able to get back to my life,” said Spyros Mantzos of New York, one of Dr. Cox’s patients. “At first, when I heard ‘radiation,’ I was scared, but I am no longer scared of treatment – I have one more round left, I haven’t lost my hair and I feel good.”

In a landmark clinical trial published in the July 18, 2013 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, treatment with Radium-223 significantly improved the survival of men with metastatic prostate cancer to bone when compared to a placebo treatment. Radium-223 treatment was associated with a 30 percent reduction in the risk of death from prostate cancer as compared to placebo treatments. The treatment was also found to protect the skeleton from complications such as bone fractures, and significantly increases a patient’s chance to have an improved quality of life. Based on these findings and other clinical data, Radium-223 was recently approved by the FDA for use in patients with bone metastases from prostate cancer.
