A Drug That Can Keep Cancer In Check

There are several different drugs, therapies, and options for every different type of cancer.Now, researchers say they’ve found one drug that may successfully treat everything from breast to prostate cancer.//
In a study of 22 patients with breast, prostate, lung, ovarian, colon and pancreatic cancer, 42 percent had their tumors either stabilize or shrink by more than 50 percent.
Specialists say , it turns off one of the switches within the cancer cell to stop it from growing, and so there’s much less side effects because it targets the cancer, rather than targeting the whole body. According to researchers it is effective in treating Lung cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and several others.

Not only did early trials show it might help different types of cancer but it was also found to be effective against the toughest to treat cancers . Thus specialists say that the new findings have given them some hope as they can now take patients with advanced cancer and give them a therapy with very few side effects that stops the growth of the disease.

Since 2C4targets the pathway, rather than the tumor, it has little toxicity. The drug is now being tested in hundreds of patients worldwide and researchers are currently recruiting patients with lung or prostate cancer.
