Clinical factors can help determine risk of prostate cancer death after radical prostatectomy

. 9.0-14.9 vs. 15.0 or more months), pathological Gleason score (7 or less vs. 8-10), and time from surgery to biochemical recurrence (3 or less vs. greater than 3 years) were all significant risk factors for time to prostate-specific death. Using these 3 variables, tables were constructed to estimate the risk of prostate cancer-specific survival at year 15 after biochemical recurrence.

Patients with a PSADT less than 3 months had a median survival of 6 years. Patients with a PSADT less than 3 months, biochemical recurrence 3 years or less after surgery, and a pathological Gleason score of 8-10 had a median survival of 3 years. Patients with a PSADT of 15 or more months and a biochemical recurrence more than 3 years after surgery had a 100 percent prostate cancer-specific survival.

"Using the current data, patients at high risk of death due to prostate cancer can be identified. These patients should be offered aggressive combined multimodality treatment using hormonal and cytotoxic chemotherapy, particularly in light of recent data suggesting that chemotherapy can modestly, but significantly, prolong survival in patients with hormone refractory disease," the authors write.
