Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Hormone Suppressors: Patients may take any of the following combinations for a period of 6 months: Lupron / Flutamide Zoladex/ Flutamide Lupron/ Casodex Zoladex/ Casodex Paclitaxel: 30 mg/m2 twice a week administered as a one hour infusion either Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday for eight consecutive weeks will be started within the first week of radiation therapy. Following the first 3 dose levels, the dose of Paclitaxel will be escalated to 35 mg/m2 (dose level IV), 40 mg/m2 (dose level V) & 45 mg/m2 (dose level VI). Radiation Therapy: 5 days a week for 8 weeks to a total dose of 66.6 to 73.8 Gray depending on when patient enter the study.

Eligibility Criteria

Male participants of any age.

Inclusion Criteria: - Any one or more of the following characteristics will qualify patient with T2/T3 prostate cancer for eligibility to current study: - Biopsy proven prostate cancer with Gleason score > 7 - Pathologic staging TXN1 (on MRI or CT) - Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) > 10 ng/ml done within a month prior to study entry (the day of first hormonal ablation) and > 10 days after prostate biopsy. In addition patients must also have: - Performance status < 2 - Hemoglobin > 11 grams per deciliter (g/dL), White blood cell (WBC) > 4000 and platelet count > 100.000/l - No evidence of other synchronous primary. Prior malignancies does not exclude if the patient is disease free > 5 years. - Prior or concurrent basal cell or non-invasive squamous carcinoma of the skin is eligible and - Received hormone therapy with any of the following combination for less than 3 months - Lupron / Flutamide - Zoladex/ Flutamide - Lupron/ Casodex - Zoladex/ Casodex Exclusion Criteria: - Clinical stage T1N0, PSA < 10, and Gleason score less than 7. - Evidence of distant metastasis - Previous surgery for prostate cancer (radical prostatectomy). - Current treatment with ketoconazole, cimetidine or hormone therapy for more than 3 months prior to inclusion in the protocol for prostate cancer - Major medical or psychiatric illness, which in the investigator's opinion may prevent completion of the study and interfere with follow up. - Bilirubin > 1.5 - Prior chemotherapy is not allowed
