New Drug Kills Cancer Cells Without Toxic Effects
May 25, 2012
A group of researchers from McMaster University have found a new drug that can kill cancer stem cells in humans while avoiding the toxic side effects of other traditional cancer treatments.

Over the past 15 years, researchers have thought that stem cells were the cause of many cancers. Canadian researchers first discovered cancer stem cells in particular types of leukemia in 1997. Since then, cancer stem cells have been found in blood, breast, brain, gastrointestinal, lung, ovarian, and prostate cancer.

Interesting news if it works and it does not mention Uterine cancer but does mention Ovarian, which at least is in the same area. Hopefully new cures can come out of this to end this disease.
