Admin Posted October 4, 2012 Share Posted October 4, 2012 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.
