Prostate cancer therapy linked to heart failure

Risk of heart failure was 72% higher in those treated with ADT compared with those who weren't

The use of androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) in men with prostate cancer is associated with an increased risk of heart failure, researchers from Taiwan report.

Previous studies have suggested an association between ADT and heart failure, but only one has included Asian men in the study population, according to Taiwanese researchers.
