RTOG 0815: Randomized Trial With or Without Short-Term Androgen Deprivation for Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer
What is the purpose of this trial?
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of dose-escalated radiation therapy with or without hormone therapy on your prostate cancer. Prior studies have suggested possible advantages to the administration of hormonal therapy with radiation. However, those studies were performed with radiation techniques that do not match those commonly used in clinical practice today (that is, dose-escalated radiotherapy). Therefore, we will be testing to see if similar benefits for hormonal therapy are seen when used with current radiation therapy techniques.
