A Phase II Study Using High Dose Three Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy in Intermediate Prognostic Risk Patients With Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate


OBJECTIVES:

- Establish the efficacy of high-dose three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy in
patients with intermediate prognostic risk adenocarcinoma of the prostate.

- Determine the PSA relapse-free survival rate of this patient population.

OUTLINE: Patients receive high-dose three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy 4-5 days per
week for at least 9 weeks.

Patients are evaluated at least weekly during radiotherapy and at 2 and 4 months after
treatment completion. Thereafter, patients are followed every 6 months for a total of 3
years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50 patients will be accrued for this study.
