Radiation Treatment May Slow Disease Progression for Patients with Prostate Cancer

Treatment of oligometastatic prostate cancer (OMPC) with stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) was shown to improve oncologic outcomes and may slow the disease progression in men with hormone-sensitive prostate cancers, according to a study published in JAMA Oncology.1

The SABR treatment induced a “systemic immune response,” with the treatment being enhanced by the total consolidation of the disease via prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-targeted positron emission tomography.

“SABR is a safe and effective modality for (metastasis-directed therapy) in OMPC that improves progression-free survival compared with observation and results in a systemic adaptive immune response,” wrote the researchers. “Complete consolidation of metastatic disease detectable by molecular imaging decreases the risk of subsequent metastases, suggesting an alteration in the natural…
