Cancer Research UK sponsors new cancer drug trial

Cancer Research UK is sponsoring a large clinical trial which will aim to develop and market the chemotherapeutic agent RH1. RH1 is a cytotoxic prodrug which is triggered by the enzyme DT-diaphorase produced by tumors. Thus it is a targeted therapy. RH1 acts similarly to already existing chemotherapeutic agent Mitomycin C but is believed to be more effective.
