Abiraterone: video: You can help put it on the PBS. You only have until Wed 10 Oct 2012.


Recommended Posts

Once regular chemotherapy with Taxotere (docetaxel) fails, a gentler tablet, abiraterone, can give many men some months of quality life.

Currently abiraterone (brand name Zytiga) costs $36,000 per year.

There is a proposal to put it on the PBS for almost free.

The committee deciding this has asked for comments from people who may be affected.

If you are a member of this support group and you haven't tried abiraterone - that means you.

They also want to hear from men who have tried it.

I made a quick and nasty video to tell the story.

Near the top of the front page of JimJimJimJim.com I have put links to the survey page, and to PCFA advice on what you may think about in answering the questions.
