Reuters Health - 22/04/2022 - New data support the use of high-dose external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) combined with risk-adapted androgen deprivation in men with unfavorable prostate cancer. Final data from the DART 01/05 trial show a benefit of high-dose EBRT with 28 months of androgen deprivation for high-risk disease and the absence of benefit of prolonging androgen deprivation beyond six months for intermediate-risk disease. The optimal duration of androgen deprivation combined with high-dose radiotherapy in prostate cancer remains controversial, Dr. Almudena Zapatero with Princess University Hospital in Madrid and colleagues note in The Lancet Oncology. The DART 01/05 was an open-label, randomized controlled trial conducted at 10 hospitals in Spain. The trial compared high-dose EBRT plus either short-term androgen deprivation (STAD) given for four months or long-term androgen deprivation (LTAD) given for 28 months in 354 men with intermediate-risk...
