It has been suggested by my URO because of my Gleason score that I look into pursuing a clinical trial. There are several out there sponsored through the NIH for PC.
I haven't heard anyone on this forum yet mention clinical trials. Is there anyone who has or is participating in one ? Are they worth the time and effort ?
There appears to be a lot of pre=requsites and it seems as tho if we would pursue one, it would be better for newer post prostatectomy patients, or newly diagnosed PC patients.
Any thoughts or comments ?
