Free Prostate Cancer Seminar in Lake Ridge, VA: Dr. Charles 'Snuffy' Myers Announces Vitamin D Clinical Trials
Date:4/16/2008

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., April 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Foundation for Cancer Research and Education (FCRE) announced today that prostate cancer oncologist and survivor, Dr. Charles "Snuffy" Myers, will lecture on new treatments for prostate cancer at Westminster at Lake Ridge, VA on April 26, 2008 from 9:30 AM--12:30 PM.

"With the recent press around prostate cancer vaccines, people are very excited about new treatments," Myers says. "The good news is there are many things people can do to prevent recurrence before it starts."

Some of those treatments include:

-- Celebrex

-- Proscar/Avodart

-- Leukine

-- Calcitriol

-- Avastin

-- Mediterranean heart healthy diet

-- Vitamin D3

-- Pomegranate.

In addition, to his lecture, Dr Myers will also be announcing his new clinical trials meant to investigate one of the most promising of those treatments -- vitamin D3.

"The current research and what I see in my patients suggests that vitamin D can dramatically slow the PSA doubling times that indicate recurrent and often lethal disease," Myers says. "The trials are meant to show Vitamin D3's role in slowing or stopping the growth of prostate cancer that has recurred after surgery or radiation in a much more substantive way." Information about the trial and how to participate will be provided at the meeting.

The program, located at Westminster at Lake Ridge, 12191 Clipper Drive, Lake Ridge or Woodbridge, VA, is free of charge and includes a heart-healthy buffet breakfast for all attendees. Sponsors include FCRE, The Virginia Prostate Cancer Coalition, Us TOO, Westminster at Lake Ridge, and Potomac Hospital.

This will be the fourth time Myers has presented at Lake Ridge but the first time he publicly announces the foundation's new research efforts.

"Myers's always provides informative lectures," notes Richard Gillespie, head of the Lake Ridge Us TOO Chapter. "But we're eager to hear about the new trials Dr. Myers is working on."

For information on the event or directions please call Richard Gillespie at 703-497-0628.
