  1. Prostate Cancer Hormone Therapy Study Have you received hormone therapy treatment for prostate cancer? If so, you may be eligible to join an American Cancer Society funded study to test a program designed to help people with changes to memory, thinking and concentration following hormone therapy for treatment of prostate cancer. This study is done completely over the phone and internet and involves a brief screening to determine eligibility, 3 assessments/interviews, and 8 weeks of home-based computer use. For more information, please contact Lisa Wu at +1 (212) 824-7805 or lisa.wu@mssm.edu This study is approved by the Mount Sinai Institutional Review Board (GCO# 10-1352 approved through 6 April 2015) Dr Lisa Wu is an Instructor in the Department of Oncological Sciences in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sina, New York, one of the leading medical schools in the United States. For a number of years Lisa's work has focused on research into quality of life issues around cancer patients experiencing cognitive difficulties after treatment. Lisa already has a number of men from Australia participating in this study. She is wanting to recruit more Australian men who have had hormone therapy treatment. Given the time difference, sending an email to Lisa is probably the easiest way to make initial contact.

    Not having a sex change just yet

    Dr Snuffy Myers suggests that small doses of oestrogen may minimise some of the side effects of Androgen Deprivation Therapy, including, amongst others, cognitive side effects. There were also a few small clinical trials around 2005-2007 which looked at the effect of oestrogen on memory (well-known researcher Tomasz Beer did a couple of these). For some time I've been trying to find someone willing to prescribe me oestrogen for this purpose. Until now, most doctors have been reluctant because of the increased risk of cardiac side effects, particularly deep vein thrombosis. My new endocrinologist was willing to prescribe it. The drug that he prescribed is normally used for transgender patients undergoing a sex change. This led to a very interesting conversation at the chemist when the pharmacist asked me had I used the drug before.
