It's been a couple of months. My dad, newly diagnosed with metastasized PC, has suffered many discomforts from Docetaxel and other medicines prescribed for treatment. Despite the blood clot in his neck, hives, extreme fatigue, neutropenia, bone pain, nausea....etc......his PSA came down from 1200 to 20. We are pleased with the results! Genetic testing determined that he did not have any Germline mutations, although many in his family are BRCA2 positive. However, testing on his biopsied lymph node revealed 25 SOMATIC GENE MUTATIONS! His doctor has not seen a tumor burden like this before! The doctor will be taking my dad's case report to an upcoming Genomic/Immunotherapy conference at CITY OF HOPE for further advice from other colleagues.
***Anyone else tested positive for somatic gene mutations?
If so, has Immunotherapy been suggested?
