    Be aware that Abiraterone is Zytiga .

    What is new here (as I read it) is the discovery that beginning Zytiga very early is much more effective than known before. Traditionally, Zytiga was usually perscribed after chemo had started to fail; the report says use it before ever starting chemo, along with HT. 

    I appreciate this link and good news very much, Gene.

    Good news!

    Thank you. I am going to print off that article for my neighbor to take to his oncologist on Wednesday.
