Detailed Description:


French multicenter, open, randomized study on 2 parallel groups

First step : treatment during 3 years (excepted disease progression) with Leuprorelin 11,25 mg SR + radiotherapy 70 +/- 4 Grays(begun within 90 days after 1st leuprorelin injection) in the first arm and Leuprorelin 11,25 mg SR alone for the 2nd arm. A visit / 6 months.

Second step : follow-up without treatment during 2 years (excepted disease progression). A visit / 6 months.

Third step : Follow-up out of protocol. 1 data collection / year.

End of study when median follow-up = 5years.
