Abstract

Hormone suppression achieves a response rate of more than 75% and is therefore a valid alternative in the management of metastatic cancer of the prostate. Monotherapy and total androgen blockade have similar survival rates and disease free intervals. However, the results according to prognostic groups are significantly better for those treated with total androgen blockade and has less severe disease, suggesting early treatment.
