The purpose of this research study is to determine the effects of abiraterone acetate plus leuprolide acetate and prednisone versus leuprolide acetate alone on hormone levels in the blood and prostate. For this study, patients are required to be suitable candidates for a radical prostatectomy (prostate surgery) which will be performed after 24 weeks of treatment.
