High modality.

Top Line: What’s the universally agreed-upon optimal treatment for high risk prostate cancer, again?

The Study: Good one. This pooled retrospective analysis of over 6000 men treated for high risk prostate cancer at 16 centers aimed to compare survival across treatment modalities. The kicker was, they had to be high risk per NCCN with at least one additional risk factor: primary Gleason 5, cT3b-4 disease, ≥50% of cores positive, or ≥2 high-risk features. They were then divided into three definitive treatment cohorts: [1] radical prostatectomy (53%), [2] external beam radiation (EBRT, 31%), and [3] EBRT with brachytherapy (17%). Across the entire cohort, definitive radiation with (HR 0.78) and without (0.70) brachytherapy was associated with a significantly lower risk of prostate cancer-specific mortality. But before your local urologist cries foul, this was distilled further into comparing outcomes among only those who received “guideline-concordant” care, which was only roughly half of cases in each treatment cohort. For radiation this meant receipt of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for at least 24 months with EBRT alone and for at least 12 months with EBRT with brachy. For surgery this meant receiving ADT and/or radiation in the setting of grade group 5 disease, pathologically involved nodes, or upon biochemical recurrence. Alas, there no longer was a difference detected in prostate cancer-specific survival...but. When compared to guideline-concordant prostatectomy, EBRT had half the risk of distant mets (HR 0.48), a risk that was halved again with the addition of brachy (HR 0.25).

TBL: A multi-institutional analysis of all guideline-concordant treatment modalities for high risk prostate cancer demonstrates a substantial reduction in risk of distant mets with the approach of external beam radiation in combo with brachytherapy and at least 12 months ADT.  | Kishan, JAMA Netw Open 2021


  1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: emutemple@gmail.com or you can contact him through his website https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ fb page Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341
