Novel Cancer Drug Shows Early Promise
A prototype cancer drug that blocks a protein called Hsp90 appears to be able to attack tumours on many different fronts simultaneously, according to results of an early-stage study in 30 patients.
The drug, dubbed 17AAG, was administered intravenously once weekly to patients with advanced melanoma, soft-tissue cancer, mesothelioma, and cancers of the breast, colon, ovary, kidney, lung, pancreas, peritoneum, parotid gland or cancers of unknown origin.

Cancer seen in family members of asbestos workers
...People with on-the-job exposure to asbestos — in industries such as construction, insulation manufacturing and shipbuilding — are at greatest risk of mesothelioma. The people who lived with them may also face an increased mesothelioma risk, because in the past these workers likely came home with particles of asbestos on their clothes and bodies.
For the new study, Dr. Albert Miller of St. Vincent Catholic Medical Center in New York obtained medical records and other data on asbestos claimants from 15 U.S. law firms. The findings are published in the May issue of the American Journal of Industrial Medicine.

...A VITAMIN E-related compound may kill deadly cancer cells caused by asbestos exposure, says an Australian cell biologist who has already established its success in trials using mice.
Gold Coast-based Griffith University researcher Jiri Neuzil said alpha-TOS, which is closely related to Vitamin E, killed mesothelioma cancer cells in experiments with mice.
Dr Neuzil said alpha-TOS also halted growth of mesothelioma tumours, for which there is currently no cure, under a five-year study involving researchers from Australia, Italy and the Czech Republic.
