Overcoming aggressive breast cancer with a new drug

post-image

A drug that boosts chemotherapy success could be used to treat aggressive breast cancers, according to scientists at the London-based Institute of Cancer Research. The drug forces cancer cells to divide quickly, making even chemo-resistant cancers susceptible to treatment. Multiplying faster than normal produces errors within the cancer cells and means chemotherapy is more likely to kill them.  http://www.inkl.com/news/new-drug-may-prove-key-to-overcoming-aggressive-breast-cancer?
