Researchers add new tool to tumor-treatment arsenal

..."The use of DNA-damaging agents has revolutionized chemotherapy against a wide variety of cancers," says Dr. Thomas. "However, a narrow therapeutic window, combined with possible severe side effects, has greatly limited their broader use." These factors, says Dr. Thomas, have probably contributed to recent repor...
