  1. There are five Thursdays in this month. Each Thursday I aim to present one of the YouTube videos from the PCRI. Hormone therapy, also called androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) keeps most of us alive by robbing the body (and the prostate cancer) of androgens. The main androgen is testosterone. When our bodies are without testosterone, some men experience hot flashes (also called hot flushes). The experience varies from man to man. Some men have no hot flashes. Others have their life very affected. Personally, my hot flashes were mild at first, and gradua
  2. This video today is about weight training for men on hormone therapy for prostate cancer. Hormone therapy is also called 'Androgen Deprivation Therapy' (ADT) because it robs a man of androgens. The main androgen is testosterone. Androgens fuel prostate cancer. And a reminder that we have a few videos of our own on the JimJimJimJim channel: https://www.youtube.com/jimjimjimjim/videos The Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) is an important source of information for about prostate cancer for patients, families, and the medical community.

    Testosterone therapy

    Hi Guys, I have recently had a Zolodex implant. My current Oncologist is very conservative and each time I discuss something controversial, such as Testosterone therapy, Bi-polar Androgen Therapy, weekly low-dose chemo (as opposed to high dose three-weekly infusions) she [is not enthusiastic [moderator]]. I live in Perth, does anyone know of an [ ] Oncologist in Perth, who [may be more enthusiastic[mod]] about new treatment options? Cheers Paul
  4. This video is about a treatment for men who already have prostate cancer. It is about adding an occasional testosterone boost to regular drug therapy to treat prostate cancer. Dr Sam Denmeade reports on encouraging trials of this approach. It is 56 minutes long and has Closed Captions (Cc) for the hard of hearing. Thanks to Rick Davis of the Answer Cancer Foundation for allowing us to post this video. Access the whole presentation, including introductions, questions and answers, at: https://www.ancan.org/bat-presentation The questions and answers begin at about 1hour 4minutes
  5. "Bipolar Androgen Therapy" (BAT) involves alternately flooding and starving the body of the male hormone testosterone. Last year the forum had a post about a small study of 16 men which tested Bipolar Androgen Therapy: click here to read that previous post. The same researchers have now reported on a larger study with 47 Participants; click here to read about this study. Dr Matt Hobbs, deputy director of research at the charity Prostate Cancer UK, warned: "this is early stage research and further studies are needed in order to understand exactly how intrigu
  6. Jim Marshall (not a doctor) said ... New agreement At the recent Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) conference I was fortunate to meet with Jan Manarite, Executive Vice President of Prostate Cancer International. The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink is their corporate website. In the past we have republished individual articles from their site, with permission. Jan has been kind enough to now give us blanket permission to republish any article, with proper attribution. We are grateful to Jan and to Prostate Cancer International for this kindness. This article
  7. Agenda Friday 26 August 2016 Please note This is a permanent change. We do not use 4444# any more. The phone numbers are unchanged. Urologist Ano Navaratnam (Urology Fellow Princess Alexandra and Greenslopes Hospital) and Medical Oncologist Ken Ho (Professor of Medicine, University of Queensland and Chair Centres for Health Research, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane) are conducting a clinical trial giving testosterone to men on hormone therapy (ADT). We are thrilled that they are both joining our phone-in meeting th
  8. In a surprising paradox, the male hormone testosterone, generally thought to be a feeder of prostate cancer, has been found to suppress some advanced prostate cancers and also may reverse resistance to testosterone-blocking drugs used to treat prostate cancer. A small study of 16 patients at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center was reported in the Jan. 7 issue of Science Translational Medicine. Larger studies are necessary before the treatment can be used outside clinical trials. Here is a link to a report in the HealthDay newsletter about the study: http://consumer.healthday.co
