A new cancer drug, Sutent has been launched in the U.K. this week, offering hope to thousands of cancer sufferers. Sutent licensed to treat deadly cancers affecting the kidney and gut is one of a new generation of “magic bullet” treatments, which attack specific tumour targets. It may also be an effective treatment against breast, lung and pancreatic cancer. Sutent has been proven to shrink tumours and stop the progression of cancer. Let’s just hope that local authorities are willing to allocate funding so that patients can be treated with the new drug.
