Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) failures in 5 years [ Time Frame: Enrollment up to 260 weeks ]
    PSA failure per Phoenix criteria of increase of 2ng/mL over nadir

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Patients without use of salvage therapy within 5 years [ Time Frame: Enrollment up to 260 weeks ]
    Calculation of the proportion of patients without use of salvage therapy within 5 years

  2. Frequency of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: enrollment up to 260 weeks ]
    Safety profile as defined by the nature, incidence, duration, severity and outcome of adverse events

  3. Proportion of Patients without Objective disease progression within 5 years [ Time Frame: Enrollment up to 260 weeks ]
    Proportion of patients who do not have a >2ng/mL elevation in PSA or require salvage therapy
