Synthetic molecules hold promise for new family of Anti-Cancer Drugsare Synthetic molecules by two Hebrew University of Jerusalem designed researchers succeeded in reducing and even eliminating the growth of human malignant tissues in mice, while no toxic effect on normal tissue.

Dagan and Gatt that their studies have shown that the synthetic compounds significantly reduces the size of pancreatic, prostate and breast tumors, with little or no effect on normal cells and tissues.

Induce fewer side effects than existing anti-cancer drugs. (more…)
