: My father has been fighting prostate cancer for 17 years, radiation, drugs, etc.
: He is 84. It has spread to his spine- Dr says no more radiation.
: Morphine partly controls pain. He gets around the house a little bit.
: What is the likely scenario for the next few months?
: How long does he have?
wow! he's fought a long time. he needs antiangios like endo/anigostatin and maybe vaccine therapy. he CAN have boron neutron capture, or cobalt palliation. also pretargeted radiomimmunotherapy. the prescription drugs piglitazone, phenretinide, and celelbrex would definately benefit him. I believe that low dose continuous combrestatin p32 phoshate would definately be beneficial.
