Well, I’m no longer too enthralled by clinical trials. Nine years ago, when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer I chose x-ray radiation as the treatment. The urologist said that I should undergo three months of shots to shut down my testosterone production. That would shrink the prostate, et cetera, so they could focus the x-rays more carefully. A few months after they stopped the shots, my body would be back to normal producing testosterone. I ageed, then he mentioned that the Luperin shots should be given once or twice a week (I’m not sure which), but I could participate in a clinical trial using another material, Aberelix, that required a shot only every three or four weeks. That sounded great, so I did that. The cancer is gone, the prostate is a very small piece of well cooked scar tissue, and almost everything is back to normal. It’s just that the et cetera never went back to the state they were before the shots. Of course, at seventy-nine, it’s not that much of a problem.
I notice that Aberelix never made it to the market. As an afterthought, current medical thinking is that the anti-testosterone procedure doesn’t buy one anything so they don’t do that now.
