Brain cancer drug shows promising preliminary results

Trials are being expanded for a new drug treatment of brain cancer. The drug is called Cervene and preliminary results show that it can extend survival rates when used in tumors that reoccur after surgery and radiation treatment. The drug is also considered well tolerated by the patient. The manufacturer, Ivax Corp, claims the drug has already shown that it is effective in slowing brain cancer growth.
