Amazing Cancer Break Through

By Ben Cohen

Some real cause for hope:

Two patients with inoperable prostate cancer have made dramatic

recoveries after receiving one dose of an experimental drug that is

creating excitement among cancer specialists.

The results were so startling that researchers decided to release details of

the two cases before the drug trial – in which the patients took part – was

complete. Doctors said their progress had exceeded all expectations. The men

were treated at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota in the US, one of the top

medical centres in the world.

Dr Eugene Kwon, the urologist who was in charge of their treatment, compared

the results to the first pilot breaking the sound barrier.

“This is one of the Holy Grails of prostate cancer research. We have been

looking for this for years,” he said.
