Prostatectomy, External Beam Radiation Therapy, or Brachytherapy for Localized Prostate Cancer

JAMA. 1999;281(17):1583-1586. doi:10-1001/pubs.JAMA-ISSN-0098-7484-281-17-jbk0505

To the Editor: The article by Dr D'Amico and colleagues1 presents a relatively unbiased analysis of biochemical outcome in a series of 1872 patients treated with several different types of local therapy at 2 institutions. Even though the study is retrospective, the lack of randomized trials addressing this issue gives this work greater significance in helping to define the optimal management of this disease.
