Prostate Cancer shows sign of recovery with full stomach

People suffering from Prostate Cancer are soon going to take less dosage of their medicines and have fewer side effects. They are going to take medicine with full stomach rather than with an empty stomach.

Prostate Cancer shows sign of recovery with full stomach

This claim was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in light of recent studies. This study also suggests that cost of treatment will be decreased by almost 75 percent.

Medicine named Abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) was first prescribed back in 2011 for treatment of Metastatic prostate cancer.

The drug was to be taken with Predenisone which decreased the side effects of drug on digestive system. This is the only viable drug for treatment of metastatic prostate cancer.

Zytiga is very expensive as it costs about 8000 to 11000 dollars for a monthly dosage and some people take it for more than 3 years making it quite an expensive treatment.

Director of the Center for Personalized Therapeutics at the University of Chicago Medicine, Prof. Szmuletwitz believes this treatment cost of 10000 dollars per month to be a Textbook example of Financial Toxicity. According to him, three parts of this drug is wasted away without any benefit. It’s simply excreted and flushed out of the system.

Prof. Szmulewitz and Ratain made their own clinical trials to find out if there was a less expensive and effective way to use Zytiga. They came to result that if Zytiga was taken with food than its effect in bloodstream of patient will be multiplied. Zytiga taken with an 850 calorie meal will have an effect factor of 10 after absorption.

Prof. Szmulewitz has claimed that if more robust clinical trials are taken that data from them will surely warrant considerations by prescribers, payers and patients.

This study needs more studies to confirm the results of this study.
