Xofigo prostate cancer drug reported to reduce pain


Xofigo, a newly approved treatment for advanced prostate cancer that has spread to the bones, is said to reduce patient pain levels.  The drug, which mimics calcium by binding to bone tissue at tumor sites, has been shown to extend patient survival rates by three months. The binding action of  Xofigo allows physicians to target the precise location of bone tumors caused by prostate cancer, and minimizes bone damage caused by tumors.  It is reported that Xofigo may allow patients to delay chemotherapy and the use of morphine for pain management.  A Xofigo treatment can be administered in a few as 15 minutes.
