Better delineation of criteria for both objective and subjective responses to treatment of prostatic cancer will aid in evaluating new cytotoxic agents as well as combinations of endocrine manipulation and chemotherapy. The inclusion of the radionuclide bone scan in such criteria will help in the evaluation of the many patients with skeletal involvement only.
