Very good news

Drug's 'spectacular success' offers new hope for bladder cancer patients with doctors hailing biggest advance in 30 years

A new drug is showing 'spectacular' results in patients with bladder cancer, which kills 5,000 people in Britain a year.
Doctors are hailing the immunotherapy drug - known as an 'anti-PDL1' - as potentially the biggest advance in the treatment of the disease in 30 years.
During tests, the drug, given by intravenous drip, cleared all visible tumours from two  patients with advanced cancer in a matter of weeks. And it shrank tumours in a quarter of patients treated - a success rate about double that of much more toxic chemotherapy.
