Prostate Cancer Gets New Hope

Some men with prostate cancer are left in a nerve-wracking state of uncertainty. Their cancer appears practically frozen, not spreading elsewhere but also not responding any further to treatment. Sadly, some patients in this state will eventually develop a full-blown, incurable, and ultimately fatal cancer. But two independent teams of researchers tested out respective drugs on patients whose stalled prostate cancers seemed to be on the verge of erupting and becoming metastatic. The trials each randomized its volunteers to either receive the drug or a placebo. In both trials, those who took the drug survived much longer than those on the placebo.
