Paul Edwards posted a topic in Articles on other sitesSam Poley's father had aggressive and advanced prostate cancer. About a year ago Sam started a crowdfunding campaign to raise at least $1 million to fund a Phase II clinical trial to investigate the feasibility of using an FDA-approved and generally well-tolerated drug called disulfiram in the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer needs copper—in fact, it’s a glutton for copper and will consume all it can get. This clinical trial will be designed to exploit that as a weakness Unfortunately Sam's dad has died but the appeal has raised $460,000 so far. This is enough to start the trial with 30 patients and more patients will be admitted as the campaign continues to pursue its $1 million target.
