Bottom Line: The rate of PSA decrease was maximal in the first month (median -3.34 ng/mL/mo), which then fell gradually with median values of -1.51, -0.32, -0.28, -0.20, and -0.03 ng/mL/mo for durations of 3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 months after SBRT using CyberKnife, respectively.The median PSA nadir was 0.31 ng/mL after a median 23 months.PSA decline occurred rapidly in the first month, and then the rate of PSA decline fell off steadily over time throughout 2 years after treatment.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: To assess prostate-specific antigen (PSA) kinetics and report on the oncologic outcomes for patients with localized prostate cancer treated with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) using CyberKnife.

Methods: We extracted the list and data of 39 patients with clinically localized prostate cancer who had undergone primary SBRT using CyberKnife between January 2008 and December 2012 from the Smart Prostate Cancer database system of Seoul St. Mary's Hospital. Changes in PSA over time, PSA velocity, and PSA nadir were evaluated from the completion of SBRT using CyberKnife. Biochemical recurrence (BCR)-free survival after primary SBRT using CyberKnife was determined using Kaplan-Meier analysis.

Results: The rate of PSA decrease was maximal in the first month (median -3.34 ng/mL/mo), which then fell gradually with median values of -1.51, -0.32, -0.28, -0.20, and -0.03 ng/mL/mo for durations of 3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 months after SBRT using CyberKnife, respectively. The median PSA nadir was 0.31 ng/mL after a median 23 months. Kaplan-Meier analysis calculates an actuarial 5-year BCR-free survival after SBRT using CyberKnife as 80.8%.

Conclusions: PSA decline occurred rapidly in the first month, and then the rate of PSA decline fell off steadily over time throughout 2 years after treatment. Also, SBRT using CyberKnife leads to long-term favorable BCR-free survival in localized prostate cancer.

Mentions: The median follow-up duration was 53.0 (IQR, 26.0–68.0) months. Fig. 1 shows PSA changes declining over time, with the different PSA velocities for each time intervals since SBRT using CyberKnife. The rate of PSA decrease was maximal in the first month (median −3.34 ng/mL/mo), then gradually falling off with median values of −1.51, −0.32, −0.28, −0.20, and −0.03 ng/mL/mo for duration of 3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 months after SBRT using CyberKnife, respectively. The median PSA nadir was 0.31 (IQR, 0.12–0.67) ng/mL after a median 23 months.
