A new therapy may lead to a cure for metastatic prostate cancer.
Researchers have found that an aggressive combination of therapy, drugs, surgery, and radiation can kill off cancerous cells for prostate cancer patients.
The study targeted the primary tumor and metastasis for each of the 20 patients.
Their results found that a fifth of the patients had no detectable cancerous cells, even 20 months after treatment.
The researchers stated that their study shows a multimodal treatment strategy for cancer patients may shift cancer therapies from managing symptoms to curing them.
