Background Several prospective Phase III randomized trials have demonstrated that the addition of long-term adjuvant HT to EBRT prolongs survival for patients with high-risk Prostate Cancer, including: EORTC (Bolla) Swedish Trial N+ (Granfors)* RTOG 8531 (Pilepich) updated *Granfors et al.

Several prospective Phase III randomized trials have demonstrated that the addition of long-term adjuvant HT to EBRT prolongs survival for patients with high-risk Prostate Cancer, including:

Purpose Several prospective randomized trials have demonstrated that men with localized prostate cancer benefit from the use of short-term NHT in combination with EBRT The optimal timing and total duration of NHT remain controversial This review critically analyzes the major randomized trials incorporating NHT with EBRT reported to date

Several prospective randomized trials have demonstrated that men with localized prostate cancer benefit from the use of short-term NHT in combination with EBRT

The optimal timing and total duration of NHT remain controversial

This review critically analyzes the major randomized trials incorporating NHT with EBRT reported to date

Is there consistent evidence NHT is beneficial? Is there evidence of a sequence dependent biologic interaction between HT and EBRT? Is there a sub-population of patients treated with EBRT in which NHT is not justified? If justified how long should NHT be used? Should adjuvant HT be added as well? What volume should be irradiated? Should high-risk patients receive NHT? All major prospective randomized trials published to date were critically reviewed in an attempt to answer the following questions:

Is there consistent evidence NHT is beneficial?

Is there evidence of a sequence dependent biologic interaction between HT and EBRT?

Is there a sub-population of patients treated with EBRT in which NHT is not justified?

If justified how long should NHT be used?

Should adjuvant HT be added as well?

What volume should be irradiated?

Should high-risk patients receive NHT?

Materials and Methods Seven randomized trials reported in six papers including patients treated with NHT in combination with EBRT on one or more arms were identified In total 17 arms compared either EBRT alone (n=3); NHT & concurrent hormonal therapy (N&CHT) (n=12) +/- short-term adjuvant hormonal therapy (SAHT) (n=5) or long term HT (n=1)

In total 17 arms compared either EBRT alone (n=3); NHT & concurrent hormonal therapy (N&CHT) (n=12) +/- short-term adjuvant hormonal therapy (SAHT) (n=5) or long term HT (n=1)

The Features of the Major HT Trials In total >4300 patients were treated on all 17 arms Doses of EBRT used were similar @ 65 to 70 Gy Three trials omitted pelvic EBRT in all patients (both Quebec series & Harvard series) One study included WPRT in patients with a risk of + nodes >10 to 15% (Princess Margaret) Two studies used WPRT in all patients (RTOG 8610 & 9202) & in the remaining study half of the patients received WPRT (RTOG 9413)

In total >4300 patients were treated on all 17 arms

The Results Every study comparing EBRT alone vs EBRT + NHT (n=3) demonstrated a benefit to patients treated with the addition of NHT One trial demonstrated no advantage to using longer NHT (3 versus 8 months) Two studies demonstrated no benefit to adding concurrent & short-term adjuvant HT (3 months NHT vs N&C&SAHT (total time, 10 months) & 5 months N&CHT vs N&C&SAHT (10 months)

Every study comparing EBRT alone vs EBRT + NHT (n=3) demonstrated a benefit to patients treated with the addition of NHT

One trial demonstrated no advantage to using longer NHT (3 versus 8 months)

Two studies demonstrated no benefit to adding concurrent & short-term adjuvant HT (3 months NHT vs N&C&SAHT (total time, 10 months) & 5 months N&CHT vs N&C&SAHT (10 months)

The Results Considering using prostate only EBRT, N&CHT appears to be equal to SAHT (9413) Patients with very high-risk disease did better if treated with longer term adjuvant HT (n=1) & a trend to do better with longer NHT (8 months) (n=1) ( P >0.05) Despite variability in study design & definitions of PSA failure there is consistent evidence for a benefit to NHT in patients with intermediate risk disease

Considering using prostate only EBRT, N&CHT appears to be equal to SAHT (9413)

Patients with very high-risk disease did better if treated with longer term adjuvant HT (n=1) & a trend to do better with longer NHT (8 months) (n=1) ( P >0.05)

Despite variability in study design & definitions of PSA failure there is consistent evidence for a benefit to NHT in patients with intermediate risk disease

Model and Literature on the Impact of Short-Term NHT and EBRT on Outcome in Treatment of Clinically Localized from Prostate Cancer RTOG 9413 RTOG 9202 RTOG 8610 Princess Margaret Quebec Studies Harvard Study Relative Extent of Disease -50 -40 -30 -20 -10 0 10 20 30 40 Low Risk Intermediate High Risk Very High Risk Dz Impact of Short Term NHT on Survival Impact of Disease on survival Net Impact of Dz & HT

Based on the data from these studies the following conclusions seem reasonable: 1. NHT is beneficial with EBRT in intermed risk patients (RTOG 8610, Quebec study #1, Harvard study) 2. Biologic interactions between NHT & PO RT may not be sequence dependent (Arms 2 vs 4 of RTOG 9413) 3. Interactions between HT & WPRT are sequence dependent (Arms 1 vs 3 RTOG 9413) 4. NHT without long term adj HT is inadequate for very high-risk patients (RTOG 9202, subset RTOG 9413)

1. NHT is beneficial with EBRT in intermed risk patients (RTOG 8610, Quebec study #1, Harvard study)

2. Biologic interactions between NHT & PO RT may not be sequence dependent (Arms 2 vs 4 of RTOG 9413)

4. NHT without long term adj HT is inadequate for very high-risk patients (RTOG 9202, subset RTOG 9413)

Based on the data from these studies the following conclusions seem reasonable: 5. Two to 3 months of NHT + EBRT appears to be adequate for intermediate risk patients with no additional benefit with concurrent & / or SAHT (Quebec studies, Princess Margaret study) 6. Patients with a risk of + nodes > 15% should undergo prophylactic WP EBRT with NHT (RTOG 9413, RTOG 8610 & RTOG 9202) 7. High-risk patients should probably receive short-term NHT & long-term adjuvant HT (RTOG 9413, RTOG 9202, RTOG 8610) 8. The role of NHT in low-risk patients has not been defined (RTOG 9408)

5. Two to 3 months of NHT + EBRT appears to be adequate for intermediate risk patients with no additional benefit with concurrent & / or SAHT (Quebec studies, Princess Margaret study)

6. Patients with a risk of + nodes > 15% should undergo prophylactic WP EBRT with NHT (RTOG 9413, RTOG 8610 & RTOG 9202)

7. High-risk patients should probably receive short-term NHT & long-term adjuvant HT (RTOG 9413, RTOG 9202, RTOG 8610)

8. The role of NHT in low-risk patients has not been defined (RTOG 9408)

Final Conclusions The composite findings from these 7 prospective Phase III randomized trials are remarkable because: There are NO contradictory studies As a body of evidence they should establish a standard of care Few comparable examples of evidence-based practices can be found elsewhere in GU Oncology
