Immunotherapy for Advanced Prostate Cancer

Immunotherapy may be used for men with advanced prostate cancer who are not helped by hormone therapy. Immunotherapy, including therapeutic vaccines and other biologic approaches, harnesses the immune system to selectively target cancer cells.

Sipuleucel-T (Provenge®)

Sipuleucel-T (Provenge®) is an innovative treatment option for certain men with advanced prostate cancer. It is designed to work differently than hormone therapy, and uses the body’s own immune system to fight the cancer. Provenge is designed specifically for each individual’s cancer. Each dose consists of the patient’s own immune cells that have been trained to seek and attach to prostate cancer cells.


Sipuleucel-T (PROVENGE®) is a state-of-the-art treatment option for certain men with advanced prostate cancer that uses your body’s own immune system to fight advanced prostate cancer.

PROVENGE works by stimulating your immune system to fight cancer and is designed specifically for each individual cancer patient. Each dose consists of your own immune cells that have been trained to seek and attack prostate cancer cells. Because PROVENGE is not a chemotherapy drug you will not experience the common, sometimes difficult, side effects often seen in chemotherapy. It also is not hormone therapy. Sipuleucel-T is considered a National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) as a “category 1” (highest recommendation) treatment for castrate-resistant prostate cancer.

Ask your doctor if PROVENGE is right for you.
