An oral targeted agent has shown encouraging activity and limited side effects in patients with treatment-resistant or relapsed acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), according to research.
The most commonly used medications for osteoporosis worldwide, bisphosphonates, may also prevent certain kinds of lung, breast, and colon cancers, according to two recent studies.
Investigators have identified two compounds that appear to block the cardiac damage caused by doxorubicin. Their report indicates that inhibiting the action of an enzyme key to the generation of cellular energy in mitochondria could prevent doxorubicin-induced damage to cardiac cells without reducing the drug's antitumor effects.
