A couple of deflating thoughts:
1. this is only about
RP patients, not radiation/drug treated patients
2. they note that it's hard to compare the historical data because of the shifts in diagnostic criteria
That being said...it appears that yes, treatments are better today than in the past, and that earlier diagnosis leads to lower mortality...compared to years ago (pre PSA, I would assume)
Conclusions? Draw whichever ones fit your notion of what "good" is. (or bad).
Pardon the sarcasm.
