Clinical Pearls:

  • Patients in this trial were randomized to receive hormone therapy alone or hormone therapy plus 6 cycles of docetaxel.
  • Median OS was 57.6 months in the hormone therapy plus docetaxel arm and 44.0 months in the hormone therapy arm.
  • Median time to clinical progression was greater in the docetaxel plus hormone therapy arm (32.7 months) than the hormone therapy-only arm (19.8 months).
