Hello, new member here. I came across this article which some on AS may consider as useful information.

Welcome to the site...

The article in your link is Seven Years old... And one of the opening statements seems odd to me.

"Patients with prostate cancer are initially treated with surgical resection, radiation or antiandrogen therapy. After an initial remission however, the majority of prostate tumors evolve into a highly aggressive, metastatic androgen-independent state for which successful therapy has not yet been established."
