The purpose of this study is to evaluate if there is a difference in quality of life (as measured by FACT-P) in patients treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for biochemical failure (PSA recurrence) following surgery or radiation for prostate cancer depending on when ADT is initiated.
||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
||An Open-Label, Phase ll Trial Comparing FACT-P Scores For Subjects Who Are Indicated To Receive Androgen Deprivation Therapy And Have A Doubling In PSA Post Curative Therapy Of Either Less Than Or Greater Than One Year
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Significant difference in FACT-P scores after 12 months between the 2 groups [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- PSA response [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To evaluate the ease of use of FACT-P to measure Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- QOL, side effect profile and evaluate the safety and tolerability of Androgen Deprivation Therapy [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Male subjects aged 18 years or older with histologically-confirmed prostate cancer, showing biochemical failure (defined as a rising PSA) following definitive therapy (surgery or radiation) and indicated to receive hormone therapy.
- 18 years or older
- Received therapy of curative intent (surgery or radiotherapy)
- Have a rising PSA which has doubled from a nadir value.
- Histologically proven prostate cancer requiring androgen deprivation therapy for at least 12 months
- Written informed consent to participate in the trial.
- Known hypersensitivity to Zoladex, Casodex, ar any component of these products
- Prior treatment with LHRH agonist or anti-androgens in the past 12 months
- Any concomitant condition that would make it undesirable, in the physician's opinion, for the subject to participate in the trial or would jeopardize compliance with the protocol.
