BREAST CANCER: NEW COMPOUND COULD ENHANCE THE EFFICACY OF STANDARD TREATMENT
Physician-scientists from the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences, Krems (Austria) together with colleagues from Germany, US and China demonstrate promising pre-clinical activity of a novel anti-breast cancer drug.
