April 16, 2007
Dr. Moran from Chicago reports on 104 patients implanted with Cesium-131 for localized prostate cancer. Serum PSAs in these patients dropped precipitously as expected given the typical response of PSA to successful brachytherapy. Patient-reported urinary symptoms had returned to pre-treatment levels in the great majority of patients by six months, which may represent an advantage over other brachytherapy isotopes.
