Nausea Drug Can Kill Brain Tumours

Interesting article on ZeeNews last week. This find certainly offers further opportunities to study possible brain tumour treatments over the coming years. Let's hope the funding is available:

Recent research from the University of Adelaide where the use of a drug called Emend has been used to stop substance P (a peptide associated with inflammation in the brain). The result was found to be a reduction in brain tumour growth - and also caused cell death in the tumour cells.

Very Exciting results!
