Study to Assess the Efficacy of Brachytherapy With or Without Hormone Therapy, Using Triptorelin 22.5mg in Patients With Recurrence of Prostate Cancer

The primary objective of the study was to compare the efficacy of brachytherapy versus brachytherapy + triptorelin 22.5 mg (single injection) in subjects with recurrence of prostate cancer previously treated with radiotherapy. Efficacy was to be assessed by biochemical failure-free survival (BFFS) curves from treatment initiation up to 5 years. Secondary objectives included comparing the following: the differences in time to progression of subjects receiving brachytherapy + triptorelin 22.5 mg versus subjects receiving brachytherapy only, the BFFS percentages between both treatment groups at 5 years from treatment initiation, overall survival between both treatment groups, total testosterone changes (from baseline visit up to 12 months) and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels (from baseline visit up to 60 months of treatment) between both treatment groups, quality of life (QoL) modifications (Spanish version of the Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite (EPIC) questionnaire) between the baseline score and the rest of measurements, and to compare safety between both treatment groups.
