Hello to all,
I just caught a bit on the evening news about a small clinical trial of a drug: J591. From what I could understand if there has been a spread of prostate cancer cells post surgery; J591 has been use to shrink the blood supply to the tumors, and thus the tumors are caused to shrink as well. Beyond this I have no further information. Has anyone else heard of J591? It sounds very hopeful.
Diagnosed at age 60
PSA went from 2.2 to 3.8 in 14 months
2 of 14 cores positive at 10%
Gleason 6(3+3), negative DRE, neg. boundaries
DaVinci surgery on 02/23/06
