My wife and I both pick up copies of CURE Magazine whenever we go to MD Anderson for visits. CURE (Cancer Updates Research and Education) has sometimes very valuable information that have helped in our cases.

This latest issue had a very interesting article on PCa and some of the new drugs being developed and approved by the FDA. For those of you that don't have access to CURE and those who still do a lot of research on new and developing ways of dealing with PCa I am attaching a link to the article.

CURE online is a free access service found at CURETODAY.com. It is easy to register and if the link doesn't work just go to the site and register.

The article "Promise for Prostate" is a good read no matter where you are in your own journey.

Glad you guys enjoyed it. I am always looking for something new as my PCa seems just a tad obstinate. I would like to find something that doesn't make me have to go through HT first. It seems that with all of the drugs HT failure is a pre-requisite. Crap!
