    We are currently enrolled in a prostate cancer clinical study for the drug Talazoparib. Has anyone else taken this drug? What has been the response?

      So, is nothing working? Have you already done taxotere and did it work the first time. I didn't think they reused the same chemo, trying to keep the cancer on it's toes. But, if it works, why not give it a try? When my son was a baby, he had an ear infection for 3 months and we tried every antibiotic, before they returned to ones we had already tried. Finally, it cleared up, but the antibiotics almost killed him, giving him severe diarrhia and a yeast infection. I hope you have good luck with the chemo.

      He had to have Taxotere in order to be able to read ei e zytiga, which worked for 2 years. After that he was given xtandi which worked for one year sort of....needed xofigo and then 10 rounds of radiation for hot spots in his hip. Now the xtandi has reached its maximum potential and the oncologist wants him to try another round of Taxotere thinking that the cancer will not be resistant to the drug this time.
      Thank you for your good wishes. As an aside, our younger son also had multiple ear infections as well and now has discolored teeth from all the antibiotics he received.

    Oh No (PSA rising again!): Xtandi worked for 1 year and then PSA rose to 41.....seems to be the magic number. Now the oncologist wants to do another round of Taxotere chemo.
