A Phase III Trial Of Short Term Androgen Deprivation With Pelvic Lymph Node Or Prostate Bed Only Radiotherapy (SPPORT) In Prostate Cancer Patients With A Rising Psa After Radical Prostatectomy
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Androgens can
cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Antihormone therapy, such as flutamide,
bicalutamide, and luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist, may lessen the amount of
androgens made by the body. It is not yet known which regimen of radiation therapy with or
without androgen-deprivation therapy is more effective for prostate cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying prostate radiation therapy to see how
well it works compared with short-term androgen deprivation therapy given together with
pelvic lymph node radiation therapy with or without prostate radiation therapy in treating
patients with a rising PSA after surgery for prostate cancer.
