"PROVENGE is a scientific breakthrough that paves the way for similar personalized treatments in other cancer types," said Dr. Mark Scholz, Medical Director of Prostate Oncology Specialists and co-founder of the Prostate Cancer Research Institute. "I'm pleased to have a new option to present to my patients and to be a part of the first physician-based facility in the area treating patients with this important new FDA approved therapy."

Prostate Oncology Specialists have treated over 30 patients with PROVENGE to date, and anticipates providing the therapy to many more men with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer as supply of the drug increases over the next six months.

"I was excited about using PROVENGE because it allowed me to use my own cells to help fight cancer," said PROVENGE patient Frank La Barba of Long Beach, CA.
