Micro-Abstract Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are anti-hypertensive medication and have been linked to prostate cancer, but their effect on biochemical recurrence (BR) remains unexplored. The aims of the study were to evaluate the incidence and risk of BR in men receiving ACEIs/ARBs after radical radiotherapy with adjuvant∖neoadjuvant hormone treatment. The administration of ACEIs/ARBs were associated with a reduced risk of BR.
