This headline appeared in one of my medpage articles: " MILAN -- The more than 14,500 cancer specialists and allied healthcare professionals gathered here for the annual meeting of the European Society for Medical Oncology are expecting practice-changing trial reports in at least three clinical areas."
One of those areas is prostate cancer:

"The treatment of prostate cancer may change as well when the results of another late-breaker trial are reported, Stahel said.

In that trial, the investigational drug abiraterone in combination with low-dose prednisone was shown to improve outcomes among patients who were unable to control their disease while being treated with taxane-based therapy for hormone-therapy resistant disease."

My medpage site does not have many articles on PCa and treatment when compared with other illnesses.  Always encouraging to see them pop up.

It is likely to get fastracked and approvals, it is supposed to be 10 times more power than Keto + Prednisone ....that makes it look pretty good comparitively in the PCa arsenal of drug therapies.

TAK-700 being used by a couple patients right now on this forum, trials useage. I think it is either the same thing or similar(they use Prednisone with it too). We await there results, some reported side effects already like nausea.
