Breast Cancer Break Through

SMART BOMB FOR BREAST CANCER

Good news in the fight against Breast cancer....it's called the "Smart Bomb."

It's A combination of drugs that acts as a sort of "smart bomb" against breast cancer cells without damaging healthy ones.   And so far, it's performing successfully in early testing.

In a key test involving nearly 1,000 women with very advanced disease, the experimental treatment extended by several months the time women lived without their cancer getting worse.

More importantly, the treatment seems likely to improve survival. After two years, 65 percent of women who received it were still alive versus 47 percent of those in a comparison group given two standard cancer drugs.

Doctors planned to report results at a cancer conference in Chicago.
