London: A new drug has offered fresh hope to ovarian cancer sufferers. The drug Avastin can stop the spread of the disease for six months in patients whose cancer has returned.
Women treated with only chemotherapy showed signs of the cancer worsening after 10 months but this jumped to 14 months with the addition of Avastin. “We know how important it is for the success of subsequent treatment that we keep ovarian cancer under control for as long as possible after initial chemotherapy,” the Daily Express quoted oncology expert Professor Chris Poole, of University Hospital Coventry, as saying.
