The combination therapy patient group underwent pelvic lymph node radiation and androgen deprivation treatment, as well as salvage prostate bed radiation. Over 87 percent of these patients had five-year freedom from cancer progression.
A Cedars-Sinai cancer study indicates improved survival following a combination of hormone therapy and pelvic lymph node treatment
A combination of androgen deprivation therapy—a common hormone injection—and pelvic lymph node radiotherapy prevented prostate cancer from therapy in nearly 90% of clinical trial participants for five years, according to a ground-breaking study from Cedars-Sinai Cancer. The results were recently published in the peer-reviewed journal The Lancet.
The research also demonstrates that individuals with prostate cancer who did not get pelvic lymph node radiotherapy or androgen restriction treatment had a five-year survival rate of 70%.
