abstract

  • Based on a literature review, improved 5-yr BRFS rates are observed for patients who receive early salvage RT compared with patients treated with salvage RT with a pre-RT PSA value >0.5 ng/ml. Whether the routine application of early salvage RT in patients with initially undetectable PSA levels will be associated with demonstrable clinical benefit awaits the results of ongoing prospective trials.
