Abstract

We have found that the Gleason's histologic grading system is a good clinical markerto predict long-term response and prognosis in symptomatic Stage D-2 adenocareinoma of the prostate. In this retrospective study, 56 cases were reviewed and correlated with bone scan, acid phosphatase, and symptomatology following bilateral orchiectomy.
