There are 3 million men living in the US today with prostate cancer. The disease often has a prolonged trajectory. There are therapies that work to slow the disease for months and years. And this is all good news for PrCa patients.
But you deserve better.
There are powerful new therapies available to treat patients with advanced cancers. They are called immunotherapies and they can dramatically slow cancer growth and/or stop their progression completely, and often extend life for prolonged periods. These therapies must be brought to bear for prostate cancer. And they will. We are working toward that goal every day, with you in mind.
MVI is focused on our patients; men with prostate cancer. We know the burden it puts on you and your families. We understand the anxiety and frustrations involved as you work with your doctor in making critical decisions about your own care. We know the side effects and unfair tradeoffs involved in many common treatments.
We're working, every day, to change this scenario, and open up the benefits of immunotherapies to men living with prostate cancer.
Be a good advocate for yourself. Become informed about your disease. Work in partnership with your doctor to identify your path of treatment. The more you read and learn, the better prepared you will be to make good decisions. Ask questions, be sure you understand as much about the details of your testing and chosen course of therapy as you can. If your doctor recommends that you consider participating in a clinical trial, be sure to ask about all of the options and types of trials available to you.
