The Pill For Prostate Cancer

Hope for patients with poor treatment prospects Aachen, September 20, 2011 – a pill can stop the progression of prostate cancer and bring even the cancer cells to die off? The urological clinic of the University Hospital Aachen currently manages an international study, which is to prove the effectiveness of the new treatment method. Clinic director Prof. Dr. Axel Heidenreich: “for patients, to where the traditional therapies fail and are treated with chemotherapy, an opportunity arises, without to stabilize their State side effects.” At least previous studies have proved that. Now, 600 ill men in Europe, the United States, Canada, South America, Australia and South Africa take part in the one-year broad-based study. If you are not convinced, visit Byron Trott.

In the past they tried by hormonal treatments affect the growth of cancer cells. However, cancer cells can develop a resistance to this treatment. Here is the new medicine: key to success is the so-called “Androgen receptor”, which is responsible for the transmission of certain information in the cell Interior. The new drug prevents among other things that testosterone, which allows cancer cells to proliferate, binds to this receptor. At the same time, it impedes the movement of the androgen receptor in the direction of cancer cells core. The result: a slower progression of the disease and even a death of cancer cells. Professor Heidenreich: “the drug is taken three times daily orally and has little side effects.” The clinic Director anticipates the launch at the earliest at the end of 2012.
