      Has a clinical trial been suggested? You can search for possible available trials here: www.clinicaltrials.gov
      I have been in four clinical trials and am here on earth solely because of one of them.

      Hello, I am an oncology nurse. Has he tried Provenge? It is an immune booster vaccine. An immunotherapy might be an option like Keytruda as well. I have attached the link for Provenge below. Good luck!

      We have had a biopsy tested for immune therapy and we are not a candidate for this.

      Let me make sure I've got this, Nettie 1959. Your husband is currently on active treatment with Eligard & Zytiga. Is that correct? Your husband has failed on Xtandi and has failed, at least once on docetaxel. Is this correct? I was under the assumption that docetaxel was something one could retry. Is my assumption correct? I was diagnosed Stage IV prostate cancer (Gleason grade 5+4=9) 12 out of 12 cores positive. I'm also not a candidate for Provenge because I have active painful symptoms. I tolerated Radium 223 to debunk the cancer (however, my PSA raised during).

      @Scoffer. Yes you are correct, he is on Eligard and zytiga. Dr said we could but he didn't tolerate it well after 3rd treatment. His cancer matasized in back, shoulders, pelvis, ribs he seems to be having more pain including in legs now. His PSA is over 200. With docetaxel he was at least at 10.
