Breast cancer drug research on fast track

Posted on March 18th, 2010 by

Breast cancer researchers say they could cut years off the time required to test new drugs for treating certain kinds of tumors under a study about to begin at the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic…

 

Known as I-SPY2, the study is designed to compare several experimental drugs at once and tailor them to the breast cancer patients who are most likely to benefit…

 

"This is really a very novel step forward," said Dr. Judy Boughey, a breast cancer surgeon at the Mayo Clinic and one of the study leaders.
