The Latest Preventative Treatment Option for Prostate Cancer

In a recent study researchers say they have found that the drug toremifene, also known as Fareston, used to treat breast cancer // decreased patients' cancer incidence after 12 months of treatment. All dose levels were found to have some impact, but the 20-milligram dose had the greatest effect.

514 patients in the study had high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, characterized by abnormal cells in the lining of the prostate ducts. Patients either received a placebo or a daily dose of toremifene in a 20-milligram, 40-milligram, or 60-milligram amount. Results from 12-month biopsies show a 48-percent reduction in prostate cancer incidence for patients taking the 20-milligram dose of toremifene compared to those on placebo.

Researchers in the current study say: "With no effective treatment options available, doctors and patients often feel defenseless against the onset of prostate cancer. Fortunately, these results offer a promising new preventative approach to prostate treatment. A chemopreventive agent like toremifene is a first step toward the possibility of stopping prostate cancer before it starts and gives patients and doctors a chance to fight this pervasive disease."
