The future of cancer treatment?

imageThe days of toxic chemotherapies may be slowly coming to an end as advanced research and clinical trials yield smarter drugs which interrupt specific metabolic and signalling pathways that ultimately allow the cancer/tumor cells to live and grow. In most cancers, the process of apoptosis or normal programmed cell death is broken. If this works according to plan, this drug compound, a PI3K inhibitor will do that for me and allow my bone marrow to get back to its normal job of producing new blood cells to replace those which have done their job and died – the way they were always supposed to. Please stay tuned.
