Information About Treatment Using Provenge® (sipuleucel-T)
Provenge® is immunotherapy (made from your own cells) for advanced prostate cancer. It is designed to work with your immune system to seek out and attack your advanced prostate cancer. Provenge® is clinically proven to help extend life in certain men with advanced prostate cancer.
Provenge® is infused intravenously, typically over 60 minutes. The recommended course is 3 doses, each administered approximately 2 weeks apart.
Prior to infusion, you will undergo a process called apheresis where samples of your own blood will be collected and separated into plasma and cells, and the cells will be reintroduced into your body during Provenge® infusion.
Even if you already received treatment for advanced prostate cancer, you may benefit from Provenge®.
Ask your doctor if you could benefit from Provenge®.
