    Cryotherapy has emerged as a primary treatment option for prostate cancer (CaP); however, incomplete ablation in the periphery of the cryogenic lesion can lead to recurrence. Accordingly, we investigated the use of a non-toxic adjunctive agent, vitamin D3 (VD3), with cryotherapy to sensitize CaP...
