Please do some research on Onconase on the net (or otherwise) before you sign up for the clinical trial. My recollection from a year ago when I searched (just using the word "onconase" as my search term) is that onconase was not expected to be a cure but, much like Gemzar, was expected to only extend the life of the pc patient. If it was me (and everybody has to make their own decision), I'd go for the Roswell Park treatment if I thought it gave me a better chance at a cure, or at least a decent remission. The side effects may be drastically different, though, and that could change my opinion. Anyway, think about it, check it out, and then decide.
