Topic: North-East cancer patients are first in the world to trial potential
North-East cancer patients are first in the world to trial potential 'wonder drug'.
Trying not to be too sceptical about this piece but thought I'd post this anyway. I found this through Cancer Research UK who are highly respected here in the UK and fund much research.
"PATIENTS at a North-East hospital have become the first in the world to be treated with a potentially revolutionary new drug designed to combat every type of cancer.
The drug trial is underway at the Northern Institute of Cancer Research at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
The first of 63 patients with different cancers have started treatment with the experimental new drug - called AZD3965 - at the hospital's Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre.
Successfully tested in the lab and on animals, it is the first time the drug has been given to humans."
