Just read the article at the link below that I got notice of in an email. As I said in the title, I hope I'm not breaking "old news" and therefore you all don't find this boring. If so, I apologize in advance for wasting your time.
On a side note, can anyone comprehensively explain the trials process while attaching a time line to that procedure? Just wondering when we might see this therapy put into the arsenal of colon cancer drug therapies.
In addition, is there a "fast track" process for drugs that show particular promise with particularly low toxicity and or benign side effects similar to what was done for AIDS drugs?
In an associated story:
Last question is: both studies are focused on "solid tumors." What are they referring to when they say "solid tumors"? Is colon cancer included within the definition of solid tumors?"
