    The title of the thread doesn't specify ARV's, so you should be able to get away with it. As long as the person who started the thread doesn't get mad at you.....I heard he's a real dick!:D

    BTW, I've started saw palmetto. I seem to be (pseudo)herxing so could be promising. I'll give updates if anyones interested.

    I did debate with myself where to put it, but decided the best thing to do was to go with the authors' interpretation rather than trying to interpret the numbers myself. With respect to methylene blue and a whole slew of other compounds, they said "ineffective or effective at toxic concentrations." Maybe that's what I'll change the name of the category to.

    I had ARVs in mind, but had forgotten about the androgen inhibitors at the time. Once I get the chance to read the paper and cite it properly I will add it.

    I am interested and am looking forward to reading about it. I recommend starting a new thread.

    spironolactone is also an antiadrogen med. could that be added to the list, just as the ones mentioned in this article you linked to below?

    Could this be made a sticky so can be found again? Is there any list of all the studies under discussion and links, or could we start one with thread names, like for the media articles?
