Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy [ Time Frame: 2 years post tx ]

Enrollment: 180
Study Start Date: May 1997
Study Completion Date: June 2009
Primary Completion Date: January 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Establish whether changes between baseline and 2-month post androgen suppression endorectal coil MRI results predict for biochemical control following radiotherapy with androgen suppression in patients with adenocarcinoma of the prostate.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo a baseline endorectal coil MRI, followed by total androgen suppression (TAS) with either leuprolide IM or subcutaneous goserelin once a month plus oral flutamide 3 times a day for 2 months. Patients then receive a second endorectal coil MRI, followed by 2 months of external-beam radiotherapy plus TAS. Patients may receive an additional 2 months of TAS at the discretion of the treating physician. Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years, then yearly thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 180 patients (approximately 60 per year) will be accrued for this study over a 34 months.
