New hope for ovarian cancer
New drug for ovarian cancer?
New ovarian cancer drug shrinks tumours
Ovarian cancer is one of the most aggressive cancers. Half of those diagnosed die within three years. And 10 years have passed since a new treatment came on the market.
But hope could be at hand. British scientists have developed adrugthat could prolong the lives of sufferers and be on sale within five years’ time.
Eight of the 18 women who took part in the trial at the Centre for Experimental Cancer Medicine, part of Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry found that theirtumoursstabilised or shrank while they were taking part, something that could prolong their lives significantly.
Not only is this an unusually high success rate for an experimentalcancer drugstudy – typically only between five and 20% of participants secure any benefit from taking untried treatments – but thedrugdid not produce the side effects involved inchemotherapy, such ashair loss,vomitingandfatigue.
Professor Iain McNeish, chief investigator of the trial said that the results were promising.
‘If this becomes a treatment, this is a whole new approach to treatingovarian cancer. At the end of the trial, eight of the women were either stable or getting better. Theircancerhad stopped growing.’
Each year in Britain6,800 womenare diagnosed withovarian cancer.
