New cancer drug
CFK
I'm from Scotland and have just read an article about a drug called Rimcasole. Research is being carried out at Dundee University and the article states that the drug 'may be able to treat cancers resistant to existing drugs.' It was developed as a drug for treating schizophrena but seemingly never used. It has been found to encourage cell suicide and has very little toxic effect on healthy tissue and therefore few side effects. Because clinical trials have already been carried out it could be available within 4-5 years and could allow the treatment of most major cancers. It is expected that it will be in further clinical trials within a year.
Early days yet but it is something to keep us going in our fight.
Best wishes to all - Cath.

This drug sounds encouraging. We desperately need something that doesn't hurt our healthy tissue. Thanks-Helen
