A very high survival rate of 85% after 8 years is demonstrated.

  • New results that will dramatically improve the treatment of prostate cancer. The results of a major European trial demonstrate that radiotherapy given after surgical removal of the prostate substantially improves survival will be presented.

  • The remarkable results from a European-American study in patients with head and neck cancer.
