It is still a very preliminary form of treatment, but taking in account the multiple failures in recent years to produce anything that is even this effective it is great news.

A couple more of steps, maybe improving delivery or dosage and these four extra months of life may become 4 years.

Get screened every year, guys!

Women's Cervical Cancer testing is free and encouraged in several countries (Rightly so), but I don't know of anywhere a similar priority is given to Prostrate Cancer screening.

I reckon men's health is not very high on priority list of governments, medics, pharma companies or the media.

Therefore full credit for J-Today for this article.

One can hope. I remember when I was 17 a retired dentist survived 30 days with an artificial heart. Things have improved since 1983.
