  1. I noticed a few minutes ago that the JimJimJimJim YouTube Channel has clicked up 50,000 views. That's a lot of help and comfort that men and their partners have found in understanding advanced prostate cancer - their disease, their treatments, and the journey of others.

  2. MONDAY, FEB 20 - 8pm EST USAhttp://www.ancan.org/bat-presentationAUSTRALIA TUESDAY FEB 21 - 11am Brisbane time, 12pm Melbourne time Bipolar Androgen Therapy (BAT) is one of the hottest topics in prostate cancer right now for men with metastatic disease. Counter intuitive as it is, trials have shown large doses of testosterone followed by hormone therapy or chemotherapy appear to be very effective for some men in reducing PSA - for an excellent commentary by Mike Scott on Prostate Cancer International, click here. https://prostatecancerinfolink.net/2016/12/05/can-bipolar-cycling-of-testosterone-really-cure-prostate-cancer/Dr. Sam Denmeade at Johns Hopkins, Baltimore (USA) is in the forefront of this research. This coming Monday, February 20 at 8pm EST USA, Dr. Denmeade will explain his research and open clinical trials on Answer Cancer Foundation's UsTOO Hi-risk/Recurrent/Advanced Prostate Cancer Virtual Support Group meeting (www.ancan.org/support-calls). Attendance is free and all are welcome.To learn how to join the meeting click www.ancan.org/joining-instructions or see below. You can attend online via GoToMeeting or join by phone. The number of online participants is limited, but phone-ins are not - if the room is full, please use phone access. For more information please e-mail info@ancan.org.
  3. Treatment of metastatic prostate cancer has changed recently. In the past doctors would use hormone therapy (ADT) at first, then wait until the disease was very progressed before giving chemotherapy with Taxotere (Docetaxel). The reason for the change? Professor Christopher Sweeney reported on a trial he led (CHAARTED). In CHAARTED, the researchers (an international team of medical oncologists) showed that starting BOTH chemotherapy and ADT at the beginning of treatment gave men a longer life. Members of your Executive Committee were invited to be the audience for an video interview of Christopher Sweeney and his Australian colleague, Professor Gavin Marx, by Anthony Lowe, PCFA CEO. Tony Maxwell, Alan Barlee and Nev Black and I were able to attend. (Paul Hobson had to miss out because of treatment.) Click on this sentence to see all of our videos on our YouTube channel.

  4. Sorry, this is the wrong website if you are newly diagnosed with localised prostate cancer and trying to decide on a prostate cancer treatment. This is a website for men who: are diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer (where the cancer has grown through the wall of the prostate capsule and is growing outside it - a cancer which has been staged as T3 or T4); OR who have recurrent prostate cancer (where the cancer has been treated but it comes back later). If you don't know how prostate cancer is staged or what T3 and T4 mean, Jim has prepared a video explaining prostate cancer stage For men who are newly diagnosed with localised prostate cancer, here are some things I and other men and our partners found useful deciding on our prostate cancer treatment: Consulting several doctors I saw 3 surgeons and 2 radiation oncologists. Starting again I would also have included a medical oncologist. Local support group I attend the excellent Brisbane Prostate Cancer Support group (Convenor Peter Dornan, phone (07)3371915 ) You can find your local support group on the website of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia http://pcfa.org.au or search Google for "prostate cancer foundation australia" In the USA, http://UsToo.com lists support groups. The comparisons of surgery, radiation and ADT by Peter Grimm and others 2011 http://www.prostate-cancer.org/pcricms/sites/default/files/PDFs/Is14-2_p3-11.pdf Other people's journeys The "You are not alone" website which has hundred of accounts of the journey taken by men and their partners through this disease. Though it is no longer updated, looking at the histories may help you. http://www.yananow.org or search Google for " you are not alone prostate cancer" This was originally posted in September 2011.
  5. With increasing options to treat advanced prostate cancer, there is no clear agreement on the order in which these treatments should be given. I attach a chart prepared (following the STAMPEDE clinical trial which recommended early ADT and chemotherapy for certain patients) by an American oncologist setting out his view of what is currently best clinical practice in America. In Australia our options are more restricted: Abiraterone and Enzalutamide are only available on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme after chemotherapy and Provenge is not available on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. Oldtimer's Disease - I can't remember which publication I found this table in. A prize for anyone who can tell me where it came from.
  6. On 20 March 2015, The New Prostate Cancer Infolink collaborated with the CureTalk network to coordinate a discussion with the well-known medical oncologist Maha Hussain, MD, of the University of Michigan on “Current trends in the management of advanced and late stage prostate cancer.” You can access a full audio recording of this discussion and a complete transcript by clicking on this link.
