  1. Cost comparison of parenteral estrogen and conventional hormonal treatment in patients with prostatic cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    The present study compares the cost of antitumor therapy and adverse cardiovascular effects during the first year of treatment with oral estrogens, nonoral estrogens, or surgical castration in patients with prostatic cancer.

    We found a much higher cost for patients treated with orchidectomy and oral estrogens than for patients treated with nonoral estrogens.

    Twenty-five percent of the patients treated with oral estrogen suffered cardiovascular complications, compared to none of the patients treated by orchidectomy or nonoral estrogens.
