One of the most common question men with prostate cancer ask us at Cancer ABCs is if they can stop their hormone therapy (ADT) when they go on a second generation hormone treatment like abiraterone (Zytiga).

A recent analysis of the SPARE Trial points us in the direction that it might be possible to halt ADT when you are taking Zytiga.  SPARE was a small trial which needs to be replicated by a larger trial before we can gain confidence in this conclusion. 

SPARE did not evaluate what, if any change. stopping ADT  when you are on Zytiga might have on survival, economic costs and the quality of life.

Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
