Tony:

I did some searching for this and can't locate a supplier and from what I see it is not for human consumption.

I will stay with doxycycline. I have been using it for years, and it probably has the same benefit. You need a presciption.

Aged, gleason 9, psa prior to surgery 2.3. Took prostate and testies out at Mayo Clinic, Sep 4, 1994. Gleason 9, in lymph nodes. I have been very aggressive in my treatment plan. I have never had a rise in psa, 16 years out. Still less than .01. My twin brother, also gleason 9, passed away 6 years ago with prostate cancer. He was not very aggressive in his treatment plan.

Thanks Will.

I guess I didn't know about (and find interesting) is the project that is underway...that seems very interesting...using existing drugs where some info. should already be available as far as side effects...should cut down on research costs, etc... I hope they learn lots.

"Evidence pointing to the effects of monensin emerged in a project investigating the effects of nearly 5,000 drugs and micro molecules on the growth of prostate cancer cells."
