In Part Three of this review, we begin with an analysis of prevention strategies for prostate cancer followed by a discussion of the clinical use of molecular techniques for the evaluation and treatment of patients with clinically localized prostate cancer. New developments in neutron and photon therapy of prostate cancer are addressed as well as the use of systemic radiotherapy for the treatment of bone métastases. Finally, we conclude with the role of hormonal therapy in the treatment of prostate cancer and the current status of development of chemo therapeutic regimens for the treatment of prostate cancer.
