I got a chance to talk to the guy again about his useage of Leukine in his PCa fight.  Well found out he has been using it for 4 years total now (I thought it was 1-2 yrs.), his Rx doc is Dr. Scholz in California, but once you have the Rx you can buy the injectable stuff locally and keep it in refrigerator.  It is very expensive, but his insurance is paying for it. He claims no side effects and it is not a hormone induced type drug at all. He does 3 self injections a week on this.
Here is a big finding in this patient and Dr. Myers has also noted people on Leukine can have other body things improve or repaired as a bonus to using Leukine.  This guy had Chron's disease and it was bad, but after 1 yr. on Leukine it has cleared up and he had scope or such testing done to prove it also. This is quite a nice freebie effect from this drug. His psa has been held very low and in check all this time using it, he is around year 13-14 right now in PCa.
Dr. Myers video we saw tonight was excellent I think it was from 2009, on drug therapies and responses and combos used.
