Medved pointed out in another thread that this particular study looked at the benfit of ADT with radiation as a primary treatment. There are other studies that also support ADT with primary radiation. Even my small town uros and radiologists recommend ADT with primary radiation. But, they say there is a paucity of data to support ADT with SRT. I think those were DR. Choo's words in his Mayo Clinic study. Dr. Choo mentioned 5 ongoing Phase III clinical trials that are addressing the issue of ADT with SRT. A study using Casodex reported some results but I don't know the status of the other four.
