Scientists have found a new way to treat breast cancer
The ErSO drug kills 95-100% of breast cancer cells, as well as their metastases throughout the body.
American scientists have developed a new cancer treatment method that is capable of destroying up to 100% of breast tumor cells. The results of the study were published in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Illinois.edu.
Experts from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created ErSO, a drug that fights both primary tumors and metastases.
ErSO activity depends on the estrogen receptor found in most breast tumors.
Experiments on mice have shown that the drug is well tolerated even in large doses. Within a few days after the start of therapy, cancer cells shrank by an average of more than 99%.
The uniqueness of the method lies in the fact that it has no side effects and remains effective even with repeated treatment.
In the future, ErSO is planned to be tested on humans. Scientists also intend to find out if it works against other types of cancer.
