Husband in Los Angeles today for a visit with Dr. Leibowitz's office and got his latest PSA at .006!  We're heading into the 12th month of the 13-month Leibowitz protocol, so we would expect a low number but always happy to see a drop, especially to such a low level.  Dr. says that the extension of any treatment such as Leukine, Thalomid/Revlimid etc. beyond 13-month protocol will be determined at next visit in late September, but that he will probably stay on Proscar/Avodart forever to block DHT.  But for now, things are very good.

Dx June 2007 - age 48

davinci RRP October 2007

75% of prostate involved
