I thank Mike Scott, again, for these plagerized writings. Mike is the lead blogger at The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink information site... (http://prostatecancerinfolink.net
The American Society of Clinical Oncologist (ASCO) has published it's top three findings for prostate cancer for 2008. He is what Mike wrote, and also the link to the article:
There are no major advances listed for 2008 that relate to prostate cancer, but there are three notable advances, as follows:
- The demonstration of the activity of abiraterone acetate in men with hormone-refractory prostate cancer
- The evidence that custirsen (OGX-011) plus the combination of docetaxel and prednisone was more effective than the combination of custirsen, mitoxantrone, and prednisone in reducing PSA levels and pain responses in men with hormone-refractory prostate cancer
- Explanation of the apparent link between the use of finasteride as an agent to prevent prostate cancer and the finding of a higher risk for prostate cancer in some men taking finasteride in the PCPT trial
