Medical Oncologists Join Faculty
Today, once prostate cancer cells spread to other sites, it is
impossible to destroy them completely with medical therapy. Therefore,
improved techniques for the management of advanced disease are a major
priority. To address this important aspect of prostate cancer, we have
recentlv appointed 3 medical oncologists to the faculty of The Brady
Dr. Mario Eisenberger is an Associate Professor of Oncology & Urology.
He is one of the world's experts on Suramin, a potent inhibitor of
growth factors which induces a dramatic response in some patients with
advanced prostate cancer. Dr. Eisenberger has established a major
clinic for the management of men with advanced prostate cancer.
In addition, two young medical oncologists have established their
laboratories on the 4th floor of The Brady Urological Institute.
Dr. Jonathan Simons and Dr. William Nelson will dedicate 90% of
their time and effort to laboratory investigations directed at
developing new pathways for the control and cure of advanced prostate
cancer. We are thrilled to have these talented members as part
of our team.
