Michael Lilly, M.D.

Dr. Michael Lilly spoke at the Prostate Forum on Thursday, August 25, 2011, at 7 pm. Our video #461 refers.


Dr. Lilly presented information about Provenge, the first FDA approved (2010) prostate cancer vaccine. 

This drug has  extended the life of patients with seriously advanced prostate cancer.  It is a treatment for men who are asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic, metastatic (wide spread), hormonal refractory (resistant), very advanced prostate cancer disease; its use has few side effects.  

Men will now have access to Provenge, the first cancer drug to use the body’s own immune system to fight prostate cancer. Dr. Lilly discussed the eligibility criteria for patients for whom this treatment would benefit.

He also told us of other cancer vaccines for more effective treatments which hopefully will soon arrive on the scene.  Dr. Lilly’s interests include improving chemotherapies and directing special laboratory studies as an oncologist practicing at UCI Medical Center.
