Bipolar Androgen Therapy (BAT) is the alternation of Androgen Deprivation Therapy with high doses of testosterone to reset castrate resistant prostate cancer to again become sensitive to Androgen Deprivation Therapy.
While it is counter intuitive, it is supported by small clinical trials. See:
This Is s pretty small trial, with only 10 patients. But it appears to confirm the effectiveness of using bat to retrospectively reset castrate resisant prostate cancer.
It was limited to patients who had been on androgen deprivation therapy for at least 12 months. That sort of makes sense.
Poshea is currently using Bat prospectively to prevent castrate resistance from occurring. He has been using it I think for about 5 years and appears to be satisfied with the results.
My question is: Why Not to Use Bipolar Androgen Therapy (BAT)?
After being on Androgen Deprivation, why not some testosterone? Why not at least try it?
Has anyone else here other than poshea tried Bat, or considered trying it?
What are your thoughts about it?
