Trial Information

A Phase III Trial of External Beam of Radiotherapy +/- Total Androgen Suppression for High Risk Clinically Organ-Confined Prostate Cancer


This was a randomized study comparing external beam radiation therapy with total androgen
ablation for 6 months with radiation therapy alone. Drugs were given 2 months prior, 2
months during, and 2 months after radiation therapy. Eulexin and Lupron or Zoladex was used
in this study.
