If you have the means go see like Dr. Scholz (Calif.) or other specialists and get a second opinion. The clinical trial on MDV3100 my laymans guess is, much of a gamble effect. It is called Super Casodex...now I don't know anything about
it..but if it is like casodex at all, probably not good enough. (big IF and guess).
Dr. Scholz is treating a man in Michigan right now with Leukine, an injection thing you can do at home after getting the Rx, the injection goodies stay in your refrigerator until you use them and you can buy them from Specialized Pharamacies (insurance is needed..cost is painful).
This man claims zero side effects (can't document that), and has been working on his hrpca at year 13 right now after failing on Lupron and such. I don't know how it might work in you...however Dr. Scholz might have an answer or other leading oncologists. Also there are other drugs and even thalidomide, estrogenics and more. What is it worth to you to get another opinion??? DCVax is in clinical trials, TAK700 (like Abiratarone) both in trials, Provenge is limited right now but next year 25000 patients will be available to use it(claimed). Keep looking and questioning...seen patients get new results with new docs, also.
