Bone age.

Top Line: While the use of bisphosphonates in breast cancer has been studied out the wazoo, not so much for prostate cancer.

The Study: Here is a retrospective look at outcomes for 745 men receiving upfront abiraterone for metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer with (n=216) or without (n=529) bone-modifying agents such as Xgeva (61%) or Zometa (39%). Interestingly, the men on bone-modifying agents had a significantly longer median survival (32 months) than those who weren’t (23 months). This really bore out among those with high-volume disease (n=420) where the difference was 34 versus 20 months. Before you figure this is probably a one-off, it’s actually in-line with a 2015 post-hoc analysis of one of the initial phase 3 trials establishing the efficacy of abiraterone. In contrast, among men with low-volume disease, bone-modifying agents not only showed no association with longer survival but also doubled the risk of skeletal events (i.e., fracture, cord compression or pain requiring palliative radiation). Say what? That’s right, no one seems to know why but these agents were modifying bone in a way that led to more than twice the number of bone complications among men with low-volume disease compared to those who didn’t receive bone resorption inhibitors.

TBL: Bone resorption inhibitors in men with high-volume, mCRPC receiving abiraterone might improve overall survival and reduce the risk of skeletal events. | Francini, JAMA Netw Open 2021

  1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: emutemple@gmail.com or you can contact him through his website https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ fb page Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341
