Started this trial at UCSF on May 16th and PSA was 56.3 at the time. Finished my first 4 week cycle on june 12th and PSA was 58.6. My psa growth rate has slowed but has not gone down and doctor said sometimes it will take 2-3 sessions before the Abiraterone shows results.
Has anyone out there been in this trial and what were the results?
It appears that this medication is a good one and would certainly like to see it help me.

Thank you for this post. The natural history at your stage is for the PSA to continue to rise, so this appears to be a good initial response. I don't have any patients on this particular trial, but would be interested to hear how it goes for you. Best of luck.
