Vaccine

Has anyone heard of Provenge ? It is a treatment where they draw your blood out and introduce provenge into it for the processing , thern your blood is re-infused into your system. It is suppose to have very few side effects and is able to go right to the source of the cancer.

Re: Vaccine

Are you taking it? It's approved so far for metastatic castrate-resistant PC. In clinical trials, it added 4 months to men's lives. That figure is a little deceptive, because many men in the study were too far gone already and it had no effect, while for many it had a much longer effect. It seems to me that the earlier one takes it, the better, and I know it's in clinical trials now for use earlier in the process, such as before there are known metastases, before hormone therapy fails, or even before hormone therapy begins. It's an immune stimulant and can have some very nasty side-effects (an immune cascade) in some individuals.

Thanks Allen: No I am not to that stage yet, and I hope I don't get there. I just read an artical about it in this mornings paper. I have had surgery, EBR, and hormone treatments. My last shot of Zoladex was 5/30/08.My PSA then was 0.01 now it is 3.96, don't know when they will start the shots again. Rich
