July 17 Prostate Cancer Progress

Prostate Cancer Progress

July 17       Men whose prostate cancer has already spread can hope to live longer if they take Abiraterone, as well as standard hormone treatment, according to researchers.  The drug, which blocks men’s own hormone production, can also reduce pain and improve quality of life.  This could help 20,000 men in the UK each year.

Researchers have also developed a blood test to identify those who would benefit most.
