Topic: Strategy to conquer cancer drug resistance uncovered - Cetuximab

http://info.cancerresearchuk.org/news/a … d?rss=true


"US scientists have identified a way in which cancer cells can become resistant to the cancer drug cetuximab (Erbitux), and suggest that treatments that are already available might be able to overcome this resistance.

Researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, US, have been studying why some patients only experience short-term benefits with cetuximab, or none at all."
