Drug helps breast cancer patients

...effective, he said. Herceptin and Tykerb are members of a new generation of cancer medicines that more precisely target tumors without killing lots of healthy cells. Herceptin has been an important option for many women with advanced breast...

Experimental cancer drug administered with altered gene

...to include a gene for a key part of the angiostatin molecule. Inside the mice, the virus apparently infected the target tumors and then made the angiostatin. This blocked formation of blood vessels and caused the tumors to shrink, the researchers...

Cancer drug development sparks hope

...tumors and hopefully shrink them, face a further quandary -- who becomes the test subject, Dr. Fick said. Do you target tumors that might spread, tumors that have spread, or tumors that are so far contained, with each one presenting difficulties...
