Prostate Cancer Chemotherapy Is not so bad

Chemotherapy with Taxotere (docetaxel) might not be considered because the side effects are misunderstood. Individual experiences and side effects differ widely from one man to another. n Generally, chemotherapy is not as toxic as we think. Even if a patient feels that his chemotherapy is causing more grief than relief, it can be discontinued; there is no contract that will require anyone to continue any treatment that either is not working or makes their quality of life intolerable.

However, many men are very afraid to have chemotherapy as there remains concerns about the toxicity (side effects) of the drug. A recent study, however, showed that the adverse events experienced by men who have early chemotherapy tends to be short-lived and [...]

Genetic Biomarker Predicts Peripheral Neuropathy Associated With Docetaxel Chemotherapy For Prostate Cancer

According to researchers at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, men with a mutation in their VAC14 gene are more susceptible to Docetaxil chemotherapy induced neuropathy and nerve pain. This debilitating side effect results from damage to the peripheral nerves and is felt by the man as weakness, numbness and pain most likely felt in the hands and feet. The Moffitt study was published online in the journal Clinical Cancer Research. The researchers analyzed the DNA of 623 men who had participated in a randomized phase 3 clinical trial that included docetaxel chemotherapy therapy. A total of [...]
