Abstract

Androgen deprivation therapy remains a mainstay of treatment for men with prostate cancer. New uses for hormonal therapy, including use in the adjuvant and neoadjuvant setting, are being evaluated. Prevention of the side effects of therapy has led to the development of alternative schedules and therapeutics.
