  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Re: Xtandi

Bill,

I doubt if enough folk have been on enzalutamide in your situation for there to be the sort of stats you're seeking. I can only give tangential advice. I've been on a similar regime - abiraterone for two and a half years. That's a lot longer than most folk experience. Usually, the treatment is effective for a matter of months. So, I come back to Terry's maxim "the only rule with PCa is that there are no rules". The same applies to treatments, I think. I take comfort in what I've been told repeatedly by oncologists - when this treatment fails (not if) there are now lots of options for further treatment. That must be so in your case too.

Good Luck

Re: Xtandi

The one statistic I do know, that is overall survival, is that Xtandi provides a 3/4 month advantage over placebo.
