Have heard of similar being said and/or written in some Journal articles, so it is not commonly used but could be tried. Another one that is interesting to research is on this drug: Dexamethasone (another type of steroid drug) http://www.cancer.org/Treatment/TreatmentsandSideEffects/GuidetoCancerDrugs/dexamethasone
Sometimes it renders better results when in combo with other drugs, perhaps estradiol or casodex??
I know a guy whom tried this as a solo agent on his slowly rising psa levels, it did not help him in the short term duration he tried it, so he switched to different protocol recently. The idea that slowing or stopping inflammation in some cancers it is part of the problem of the cancer, so it could be useful if inflammation is part of the cause of the cancer. Some PCa can have inflammation as part of the variables, is what I am hearing.
The other thing is sometimes, at some point in your therapy useage, casodex could actually feed PCa cells that mutated or became resistant and add to a rising psa level, then some docs have you drop it and you may get AAWD (anti androgen withdrawal) and it effectually lowers your psa level just by dropping it. (talk about strange happening in PCa...this is the twilight zone on steroids).
So, try it and see what your results actually are. There are alot of various protocols one can try to effect PCa and change psa levels, and do sequencing or on/off or intermittent....call that a fun rumor, but have witnessed such in others and on my own protocols.
