A study is being conducted on an experimental breast cancer drug called lapatinib. Results showed that tumour growth was inhibited in nearly half of the women who took the drug for eight weeks. It has minimal side effects and works by targeting specific receptor sites on breast cancer cells. It is also the first drug that has shown a response by tumours unresponsive to two other traditional therapies.
