Many of us in the United States with advanced prostate cancer who have failed Zytiga are looking to enter the Early Access MDV-3100 Clinical Trial. However, you need to be aware that there are some requirements you will need to meet prior to starting MDV-3100.
You will need to wait 30 days after stopping Zytiga to allow it to “washout” of your system. Additionally, if you have had any radiation treatments you must wait 3 weeks after the treatment before you will be allowed to have the MDV-3100.
As with all trials there are a large number of forms that will be needed to be filled out and signed. The forms will need to be completed within 28 days of your receiving them, you will need your blood drawn to check your liver and kidney functions and have an EKG.
If you are interested in the trial, have advanced castrate resistant prostate cancer, you should contact the trial site immediately and get the ball rolling so you will be able to start the trial ASAP after you have completed the forms and gone through any required “wash out” periods.
