Lab disaster may lead to new cancer drug

By RobotGod     Feb 4, 2007 in Health
Her carefully cultured cells were dead and Katherine Schaefer was annoyed, but just a few minutes later, she realized she had stumbled onto a potential new cancer treatment.
A colleague overheard her complaining. "The co-author on my paper said,' Did I hear you say you killed some cancer?' I said 'Oh', and took a closer look."
You have to love it when accidents lead to breakthroughs. It all sounds pretty promising indeed. I want to see where this leads. Hopefully it wont lead to a Super high priced pill. The most important factor seems to be that it could overcome the resistance that tumor cells often develop to chemotherapy. Good news.
