Suffering through my second bout of Docetaxel so there isn't much on my cloudy mind, but many of the drugs mentioned are off-limits to veterans like me who use the VA. If it isn't generic, we don't get it. And as for the hundred g's that Provenge rips off Medicare for 4 months of life is criminal. Count me out. I am studying epidemiology at the Univ. of S. Carolina with prostate cancer research as my primary interest . I am taking a grant to study at the Hospital Saint Gregoire and U. of Rennes in France this fall as a fellow. They have made a significant breakthrough with Docetaxel and a polyamine free diet that enhances the effectiveness of Docetaxel by 50%. I believe in integrative medicine; that natural medicine and traditional medicine are partners in healing. As a chef for 40 years we are going to work trying to develop a diet that I can teach to others (hormone refractory breast cancer included). This diet has proven to extend life, relieve pain and improves the quality of life. I'm stoked!
