Bone Loss in Men on Androgen Blockade as Adjuvant Therapy for Prostate Cancer
Bone Loss in Men on Androgen Blockade as Adjuvant Therapy for Prostate Cancer

Patients with advanced prostate cancer undergoing adjuvant treatment with androgen blockade will be followed over a 1 year interval to assess the effects of this treatment on bone metabolism. It is expected that men undergoing androgen blockade will experience accelerated bone loss.
