I looked at his website -- he's one of those quacks who think HIV doesn't cause AIDS. I thought Harpman posted that to alert us to all the quackery and misinformation on the net. But maybe, he takes the man seriously. It's better to stick to sources in peer-reviewed journals, imho.
Jim, yesterday Celgene canceled their clinical trial of Revlimid+docetaxel vs placebo+docetaxel, because it didn't confer a survival benefit. It doesn't prove that Revlimid won't work as part of a different cocktail, though. But with this new information, it would be hard to justify the increased cost, as you say.
To all out there: Please read information available at, drcatalona.com. He shares his thoughts on propecia, as well as other medications & types of treatment. Will also answer questions if can do so. He is a world authority on Prostate Cancer research. He's now located at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, but has people, including other doctors, from all over the country & world that come to him for treatment. He has been operating & researching PC for over 35years & is the person that developed the PSA test & has pushed it as a viable tool, even when others question it's use. He's developed many other tests, as well as treatments used in PC, some of which only available by he & his staff.
My father was treated by him in '94 @ stage 3, & is still cancer free. By the way, he is also studing the connection between PC & breast & ovarian cancer in families. Worth looking into this subject. When I was DX'd w/Breast Cancer in '07, he is who I contacted for help & direction. My being in the St. Louis area, he could only offer limited help, but was enough to get me past that "deer in the headlight" period. Yes, am still cancer free!!!
Best wishes to all on your journey!!!
P.S. If at all possible, make sure you go to a NCI designated treatment center for any type of cancer.
