I've reached the half way point on the stage 2 trial for biochemical recurrence after definitive primary treatment failure. Avastin plus cab (lupron + Casodex ).
The usual ht (hormone therapy) symptoms in my case fatigue, memory, losing train of thought, emotions. No hot flashes so far.
This is my second time on 6 months of cab (combined Androgen blockade).
My present psa is 0.02 :)
How the Avastin effected the psa drop is unknown.
Trial stops the end of May then compare the 2 arms on length of time till bcr.
I sincerely hope this leads to a prolonged remission and the Avastin contributes to it.
It may lead to another treatment for this stage of the disease.
Best wishes to all
