Well envolved in reading Mark's newest book just out apparently and plenty on drug therapies, explanations of HT therapies spelled out better for some people to comprehend, and drugs in trials with possible results, things to help prevent or lessen any side effects on therapies, good and useful nutrition and more. Really good information and on some of the latest drugs and therapies, including Provenge, Abiraterone, Jevtana. Explainations, and side effects disclosed and doseages usually mentioned or other tidbits. Covers most drugs we might have heard of in reasonable fashion.
Your future drugs in Clinical Trials mentioned in this book with some details, info:
Aflibercept (VEGF Trap)-injection or IV
Dasatinib (Sprycel)- pill (approved in off label for other reasons already)
Ipilimumab (MDX-010)- IV
Lenalidomide (Revlimid)- pill (already approved for other treatments)
MDV3100 (aka-super casodex)- pill (also same inventor has ARN509, similar too)
OGX-011 (custirsen sodium)- IV
Prostvac (poxviral vaccine)- injection
Radium-223 (Alpharadin)- IV
XL184 (Cabozantinib)- pill
Zibotentan (ZD4054)- pill
Alot of those are in phase III clinical trials, so possibly getting approval in reasonable time frames. Mentioned in his book sometimes you can get these drugs without approval by pleading for 'Compassionate useage' concept...some have been obtained as such, some are listed as available under those parameters (aka) in the book. This is historically a good time period going on in PCa investigations and researching things, much more can be done including combinations of these drugs and sequencing ideas. Back in 2002 you had much less in options for hrpca treatments, so some improvement is happening.
