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.
