Translates biological understanding to cancer therapy

Some years ago a patient with spread and incurable bladder cancer was treated with a pharmaceutical against an unrelated tropical disease. This surprisingly resulted in that the cancer disease as well as the metastasis disappeared together with the tropical disease. Follow-up research suggests that a convenient oral combination therapy, MFA-370, consisting of the tropical medication and another well-established pharmaceutical, further enhance the anti-cancer effect in a wide range of cancer cell lines representing at least 40 % of all cancers.
