GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s drug Tykerb, in an unexpected finding, cut the number of breast cancer stem cells by half in 30 patients, and two-thirds were cancer free after follow-up treatment with other therapies.
The finding, reported today at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in Texas, supports the newest theory in cancer, that a tiny number of stem cells lurking within tumors are the driving force that fuels their growth. Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston said the finding may be a first step toward changing the way cancer is treated.
Stem cells! I always knew they were really a force for evil. And those liberal apostates wanted us to cultivate them.
Liberals: Objectively pro-breast cancer.
PS: Did anyone read that Boondocks series where President Bush declares a "war on stem cells"?
