Abstract

Adenocarcinoma of the prostate remains a significant public health problem and a prevalent cancer in men. Prostate-specific antigen used as a biomarker has established a clear migration of patients towards earlier-stage disease at presentation. However, in spite of process improvements in traditional therapies including surgery, radiation therapy, and hormone management, there remains a significant cohort of patients with intermediate- to high-risk features for poor outcome in spite of optimal use of traditional management. This paper focuses on future treatment strategies integrating new therapeutic options with traditional management, specifically to pinpoint new radiation therapy strategies.
