New hope to fight cancer

Is it possible there is another cancer drug that offers to beat back cancer without the side effects of chemo?

That was the news today.

I applaud cancer researchers for their work.

Pfizer's new drug called Xalkori, has just been approved.

It's the first new medicine in several years for deadly lung cancer.

It deals with a gene variant.

Xalkori is approved for the roughly 4 percent of patients with

non-small cell lung cancer who have what's called the ALK fusion

gene.

That's about 6,000 Americans a year, but most patients

tested had tumors shrink or disappear for months, without the nasty

side effects of chemotherapy.

There is hope,

God Bless!
