The following was posted on the Malecare Advanced Prostate Cancer Health Unlocked online support group.  I have received permission to reprint it here because it might be helpful to some of you.

FYI-    Provenge is a cancer vaccine that helps to mobilize your own immune system to your prostate cancer.  It is currently only approved in the United States for men who castrate resistant.

It is administered by first removing a bag of your white blood cells, sending them off to a factory in Seale Beacj Calif. where the white cells (T cells) are altered by having a protein placed on to their surface.  These changed (supped up) cells are then re-administered into you by an infusion.

Hello folks.

Just finished my Provenge treatment. Her
