combination hormone therapy

use of multiple ways to affect the body’s hormones. For example, prostate cancer is sometimes treated by combining castration or an LHRH analog to lower testosterone levels, plus an anti-androgen to help block the cancer cells from using any remaining androgens (male hormones). This is also called combined androgen blockade (CAB), total hormonal ablation, total androgen blockade, or total androgen ablation. See also androgens, androgen deprivation therapy, castration, hormone therapy, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogs.
