Quite a few new members have been coming in with metastatic disease, lately.  Today on the InfoLink therer is some information about Clodronate, an oral medication, that has shown the ability to extend life as much as 23%.  Pretty significant.  Those with mets, or family members with mets might want to ask the doctors about this development...
 
 
It is a small trial study, but it is worth noting...
