Treatment of Prostate Cancer With Docetaxel + Hormonal Treatment Versus Hormonal Treatment in Patients Treated With Radical Radiotherapy
Randomized Adjuvant Phase III Trial of Six Cycles of Docetaxel+Hormonal Treatment Versus Hormonal Treatment in Patients With Intermediate or High-risk Prostate Cancer Treated With Radical Radiotherapy
As docetaxel is proven to be effective in late stages of prostate cancer with a large tumour burden it should be effective in primarily treated intermediate and high risk prostate cancer as an adjuvant treatment after radiotherapy to prevent early relapse. This will therefore be tested in a randomised phase III trial where patients will be randomized either to docetaxel or surveillance

Primary endpoint:

  • PSA progression rate, ASTRO guidelines.

Secondary endpoints:

  • PSA doubling time after progression
  • Quality of Life (QoL)
  • Safety
  • Metastases free survival
  • Overall survival
Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Drug: docetaxel
docetaxel 75 mg/square meter i.v. every third week, six cycles
Other Name: LHRH ananlog 9 months
  • Experimental: Docetaxel arm
    six of docetaxel every third week + hormonal treatment
    Intervention: Drug: docetaxel
