Researchers are calling it a major breakthrough in the battle against breast cancer, a new class of pills showing potential for shrinking otherwise inoperable tumors.
The treatment is showing promise especially in the fight against breast, ovarian and prostate cancer.
“As a class of drugs, these are definitely going to change the face of breast cancer for certain types of breast cancer patients,” she said.
”These were very difficult to treat patients in the past, and now, I have an option besides standard chemotherapy,” she said. Osborne said unlike chemotherapy, the pills target only the cancerous cells and leave the healthy ones unharmed.
Doctors said patients interested in trying this drug should seek out clinical trials.
