This one is a little more technical, than my last link on SRT, but has a lot of good info too:

I really appreciate the articles. They are very informative.

So many variables, such a complex illness, no wonder it is so confusing and difficult to treat. :(

Whenever I post article links, I generally try to add value by reading the article and providing my own interpretation of key points...so that I'm not accused of a degree from Google University.
 
In Oct-2010, several members were interested in the combination of SRT plus HT, so provided I provided them with this same Choo paper here (as there is relatively little on this narrow topic elsewhere in the literature):
The Choo paper discussed on the PCRI site is here:  “Salvage Radiotherapy for Patients with PSA Relapse Following Radical Prostatectomy: Issues and Challenges”; discusses toxicity for both ART & SRT.  2010  http://e-crt.org/Synapse/Data/PDFData/0036CRT/crt-42-1.pdf     There is a section of interest in this paper titled, "Salvage Radiotherapy plus Androgen Ablation Therapy for PSA relapse."
 
Galileo, I like your links, which include value-added descriptions, as appropriate.

All articles I link, I have read of course, and generally I don't feel any personal commentary is needed. Just sharing info as found, like many others do.
