New Cancer Drug Is So Effective Against
Tumors, the FDA Approved It Immediately:

"A small but significant new study is blowing experts away after it found that a particular
cancer drug overwhelmingly helped shrink or eradicate tumors in patients whose cancer
had resisted every other form of treatment.

The study, which was published in the journal Science, followed 86 patients who had
advanced cancer of the pancreas, prostate, uterus, or bone. The patients were given
pembrolizumab, which also goes by the brand name Keytruda, and the results were very
promising. Sixty-six patients had tumors that shrank significantly and stabilized; among
them were 18 patients whose tumors disappeared and havenít returned."
