The long-term follow-up of the first double-blind, randomized study to directly compare combined androgen blockade (CAB) with bicalutamide 80 mg versus lutenizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist (LHRH-A) monotherapy demonstrated a significant overall survival advantage in favor of CAB. More patients who received CAB achieved a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) nadir of ≤1 ng/mL than patients who received LHRH-A monotherapy, and the patients who attained a PSA nadir of ≤1 ng/mL survived significantly longer than patients with PSA levels that remained above 1 ng/mL.
