Stanford University enhanced this study by addressing post prostatectomy treatment including ADT and WPRT. The criteria at Stanford was PSA >20, High Risk disease (Gleason 7>, and stage III). The stanford results after five years showed more than twice as many patients in remission at year five. The Stanford study is significant because IMRT was used. RTOG was started and completed before IMRT. IMRT allows higher concentration dosing in smaller areas. There is no certanty that IGRT or Proton will share the same results results. I'd like to see that result, but we'll have to wait quite some time.
