Great news. These findings will influence the importance given to the newer drugs as well (such as Abiraterone acetate), which do not make part of the protocols of the patients/cases used in the trials but have proven effectiveness with lesser side effects.
I hope institutions like NCCN will alter their guidelines and introduce newer measures regarding HT, based on truthful results like these.

Here is the abstract of the trials;

Thanks for posting the article.
