Cancer researchers for the UK and Astra Zeneca Corporation are going to join together in clinical research that could change the face of cancer forever. The two are going to put a medication into clinical trials that could prove to be the long awaited cure to help fight certain types of cancer. If this clinical trial proves what the researchers are hoping it will prove, cancer may be something that is more easily destroyed and may become a thing of the past.
The drug, AZC-3965, may not help all types of cancer, it is hope for some types of cancer. This drug isn’t yet out on the market, but the fact that it will be in clinical trials gives greater hope to cancer patients who now have to go through extensive cancer treatments that drain them of energy and only give slight hope of putting the cancer into remission. Cancer treatments now consist of things like chemotherapy, which is very hard on the body. Patients on chemotherapy often lose their hair, but even worse, they lose their energy. There may be a possibility that these things will no longer be an issue if AZC-3965 works as well as what researchers think it will in clinical trials.
Cancer often comes back even after extensive treatments. Cancer is now kept at bay with these treatments, but there is not really a cure for it. If AZC-3965 works in clinical trials, that may all be a thing of the past. There are no guarantees with a medication that is going into clinical trials. They don’t know what the results will be when humans take it. However, usually, when a drug goes into clinical trials, it holds high hopes that it will work. This is great news for all cancer patients because it means taking a pill to help fight off cancer.
This drug is believed to block certain receptors in cancer cells that keep the cancer from further growing. It is also believed that the cancer will basically be smothered because of it and lose it’s power over the body. That in turn means that people could possibly stop dying from cancer and that cancer will be more like other illnesses that can be treated with a prescription. This is an amazing breakthrough for scientists and for people around the world that fear getting cancer or who already have it. Imagine, as a cancer patient, to be able to take a prescription instead of harsh chemo treatments that drain you of energy and has other adverse affects on the body. This drug could change everything about cancer and it’s deadly affect on it’s victims.
