Advexin Reduces Breast Cancer Tumor Size and Boosts Immune System

Dr. Massimo Cristofanilli, CancerWise. December 05, 2005
Breast Cancer tumor size decreased an average of nearly 80% when patients in a new study took the gene-based drug Advexin with traditional chemotherapy drugs before surgery, researchers reported during the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in December. The tumor reduction gave many patients the option of choosing lumpectomy (removal of the tumor only) rather than mastectomy (removal of the entire breast). Tumors in patients’ lymph nodes also decreased in size, say the M. D. Anderson scientists who conducted the study.
