Scientists in Europe may have found a breakthrough for the most common cancer in women.
They believe that have found the cure for breast cancer the most common disease, from which every eight women in America develops in their lives.
Breast Cancer Breakthrough
The research showed that two drugs combined can treat breast cancer in just 11 days. The drugs are not new they have been used for treating breast cancer but separately not together before surgery and chemotherapy. They are Herceptin (a.k.a trastuzumab) and Lapatinib.
They do not have the side effect as chemotherapy like hair loss, vomiting and fatigue and can beat the cancer cells without causing harm to the body system.
Chemo is an alternative but not the only choice for some people.
Clearly, the two drugs combined have a major effect on breast cancer cells as opposed to being used on their own.
There is still a problem that Herceptin’s licensing makes it only available for use alongside chemotherapy and not alone.
Maybe this brake throw will change this opinion in the future.
The medicine is improving every day and many researchers have been made so we hope in the near future this disease will be treated with no pain and casualties.
