The first Conference on Asian Trends in Prostate Cancer Hormone Therapy was held in September 2001 to serve as a forum for Asian urologists to compare data on prostate cancer and discuss issues regarding the use of hormone therapy. The conference revealed that due to various cultural and philosophical factors, differences exist in prostate cancer management among the Asian countries. In addition, a lack of databases on hormone therapy was exposed in some countries. It was noted that many decisions in the treatment of prostate cancer are influenced by the strategies adopted in Western countries, and that attempts to formulate uniform guidelines for the Asian region have hitherto been unsuccessful. The main findings of the conference are reported in this review.
