Active Biotech commences clinical studies in prostate cancer patients


In the follow-up study, a number of efficacy parameters will also be evaluated.
The study includes patients who do not respond satisfactory on hormonal therapy, which is given in order to inhibit the male hormone testosterone's stimulating effect on prostate cancer growth.
Patient recruitment has started and is expected to proceed during the beginning of 2005.
The study is carried out at the Urology clinics at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital
in Gothenburg and at the University Hospital in Lund.
