Age and Prostate Cancer Survival—Reply

JAMA. 2010;303(1):33-34. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1934

In Reply: We agree with Dr Froehner that the potential relationship between age and prostate cancer survival may warrant further study. Although the randomized Scandinavian prostatectomy study by Bill-Axelson et al that Froehner cited may be interpreted as suggesting a potential relationship between age and cancer-specific mortality, the authors of that study noted that the effect was not statistically significant.1 In addition, based on a previous study,2 Bill-Axelson et al further noted that age was not an important prognostic factor in the population from which their study participants were recruited.1
