Abstract

Prostate cancer recurrence affects up to 50% of men in the first 10 years after radical prostatectomy for clinically localized disease. New treatment approaches that reduce this risk are needed. Current published data on the use of adjuvant hormonal therapy in the post-radical prostatectomy setting are limited. New data from the bicalutamide (Casodex) Early Prostate Cancer program show that bicalutamide 150 mg/d, given as immediate adjuvant treatment, produces clear benefits with respect to both progression-free survival and prostate-specific antigen progression when compared with standard management with radical prostatectomy. The greatest improvement of progression-free survival was observed in patient subgroups at highest risk.
