  • Why has nobody joined the dots between a widely-syndicated article in Reuters which said that this drug might well be killing patients, published on March 30th, and the terrible sales this quarter?

  • We know for certain that the other treatments, chemo, radiation etc. have also killed people. The safety of Provenge was proven well before its approval. Keep in mind that currently, only the sickest, most advanced PCa patients have been allowed in Provenge clinical trials. It is highly unlikely that a healthy patient could be harmed by Provenge.

     

    The true test of Provenge's worth can only be ascertained by giving it as a first-line treatment without requiring participants to have hormone-refractory PCa.

  • This is a pretty misinformed interpretation of this article. The Reuters article suggests that patients receiving the CONTROL vaccine in the study MAY have died earlier that expected. Nothing about Provenge and early deaths.
