Intermittent Hormone Therapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer Improves Quality of Life, but Decreases Survival

Intermittent Hormone Therapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer Improves Quality of Life, but Decreases Survival | Laser prostatectomy | Scoop.it

Continuous androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the standard treatment for metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. It can often be associated with side effects like erectile dysfunction, mental health disorders, and impaired physical functioning; most patients eventually develop resistance to the treatment, leading to castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine compares intermittently dosed ADT to continuously dosed ADT. The findings suggest intermittent ADT decreases side effects up to 3 months of treatment and almost triples the time to developing CRPC; however, it decreases average survival by 0.7 years and may increase the risk of death by 20%.
