DU Professor Develops Cancer-Fighting Compound

Duquesne University Distinguished Professor Dr. Aleem Gangjee has been testing a cancer-fighting drug on mice that seems to kill off cancer tumors without affecting normal cells. He says the compound could fight ovarian, breast and prostate cancers, as well as some types of lung and liver cancer.

Dr. Gangjee says testing is stilling in its early stages, and has not yet been tested on cancer patients. However, he says he does not see any major obstacles against human testing in the future.
