  Purpose

Prostate cancer patients diagnosed with a biochemical recurrence and limited metastases are conventionally treated with androgen deprivation therapy. However, in patients with limited metastatic load, the time to progression might be. Subsequently, active surveillance of these patients until progression might defer the start of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for several months to years. As an alternative, salvage treatment of the limited number of metastases with either surgery or radiotherapy might postpone the start of ADT even longer. The current trial hypothesizes that ADT might be deferred longer following salvage treatment as compared to active surveillance.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Androgen deprivation therapy free survival. [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until androgen deprivation therapy is started, assessed up to 2 years. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Androgen deprivation therapy free survival will be calculated from randomization until androgen deprivation therapy is started.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of life questionnaire 1. [ Time Frame: At 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire: European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality Of Life C30 (EORTC QLQ C30)

  • Quality of Life questionnaire 2. [ Time Frame: At 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire: Short Form (36) Health Survey (SF36)

  • Quality of life questionnaire 3 [ Time Frame: At 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire: EORTC QLQ PR25
