Washington: In a new study, scientists have shown that two drugs used to treat breast cancer and osteoporosis eliminated cervical cancer in mice.
The lab studies, which should take one or two years to complete, could be followed quickly with phase-two or phase-three clinical trials. Early phase trials would not be necessary since the drugs have already been approved for clinical use. Lambert and his team used special mice they developed more than 20 years ago to study cervical cancer. The mice were genetically engineered to carry human papillomavirus (HPV) 16, known to be strongly associated with cervical cancer.
The study has been published in this week``s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ANI
