Abstract:

Frequent prostate specific antigen testing for screening and monitoring prostate cancer has led to significant stage migration. We evaluated whether overall survival in hormone naïve patients with metastatic prostate cancer has improved during the era of prostate specific antigen use. We also assessed whether any patient subsets benefited differentially during this period.
