it's looking like docalutamide (currently in stage 3 trials) is going to be the NEXT drug after Xtandi, probably not due to be on the market until late 2018...or even 2019.
Here's our problem. My husband needs it NOW. We requested a ''compassionate use'' designation. Bayer responded saying they have no compassionate use program for this drug DUE TO LACK OF REQUESTS.
here's the contact information:
100 Bayer Boulevard
Whippany, NJ 07981
Phone: +1 862 404 3000
Please give it to your doctors and ask them to request it for compassionate use. even if YOU don't need it yet, your doctor most likely has a patient that DOES. the more requests they get, the bigger the chance that some of us will be able to get it early. the clinical trial prohibits people with two cancers to enroll in the trial...which is my husband's problem or he would be in the trial.
if you call the number their oncology dept will contact your doctor, most likely telling him ''not possible'' at this time. With ENOUGH REQUESTS they will probably make it available for compassionate use.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
