Intermittent Androgen deprivation therapy is not a good treatment for metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer

Receiving androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) on an intermittent basis does not appear to be a good choice for men with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer, according to a trial published in NEJM (2013). After a median follow-up of about 10 years, the study authors found that 765 men treated with continuous therapy lived longer than 770 men treated intermittently (average survival, 5.8 vs 5.1 years). These outcomes translate to a 10% increase in the relative risk for death with the intermittent approach (hazard ratio, 1.10; 90% confidence interval, 0.99 – 1.23).
