This is not necessarily all possible drugs used within the war on PCa, this is why onco-docs are needed, to figure out which, when, how much, the benefits, risks, rewards, side effects, pricing, etc.  There are some newer drugs coming (listed above)that appear to be beneficial, some are supposed to be here between now and 2010 for making FDA approval, it is being said.
smurf  -I'm tired of thinking of all these drugs, but it is warfare on PCa and patients are looking for answers. (edited to add some more stuff)
