Prostate Cancer Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Health Professional Information [NCI] - Stage II Prostate Cancer Treatment

continued...

Other clinical trials

Other clinical trials, including trials of neoadjuvant hormonal therapy followed by radical prostatectomy, are ongoing.

Current Clinical Trials

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage II prostate cancer. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.

General information about clinical trials is also available from the NCI Web site.
