It's hard to believe but I had my RP one year ago March 1st. I completed a 6 month clinical trial at the same time. Just had my annual follow-up and had another 0! Here's to many more years of zeros for all of us!

    Congrats on the continued 0's. Perhaps I missed something here but please direct me to another one of your post or what is this about a 6 month clinical trial you participated in? All the best in your journey

    Clinical trial
    Here's the official title:

    COU-AA-201 Neoadjuvant
    A Phase 2 Open-Label, Randomized, Multi-center Study of Neoadjuvant Abiraterone Acetate (CB7630) Plus Leuprolide Acetate and Prednisone Versus Leuprolide Acetate Alone in Men With Localized High Risk Prostate Cancer

    So, I took aberaterone and Lupron plus prednisone for 6 months prior to surgery. They are trying to see if Abiraterone helps as a neoadjuvant therapy. I figured it couldn't hurt and might help both me and someone else.

    Thanks John
    Congrats and best wishes for many more "Happy New Zyear-0's!!"

    BD, Try searching the keyword “Abiraterone” instead. Pretty interesting clinical trial/journey. Hope John doesn't mind, but here are a few of his threads/posts (there are others too).

    One of the frustrating glitches in the CSN search feature is that often some or all of a user’s posts don’t show up in the PCa search log. (Perhaps the CSN PCa community manager would like to comment or provide info on any CSN search feature updates to make PCa keyword searches more inclusive and accurate). This glitch seems to be the case with SeattleJ’s previous posts--they don’t come up after a search of his user name: logically, they should, but as of the date of this post, they aren’t. Go figure...

    Be well,
