I came across a great article about cancer in the latest issue of Caltech’s monthly newsletter, Engineering and Science:
It is really well written, I learned a lot about cancer, how it is being treated, and how many of the side effects of the treatments come about. The article describes an innovative drug developed by a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Caltech, Dr. Mark Davis, after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. The drug is presently undergoing Phase I trials – the article also explains the whole FDA approval process nicely.
FYI and entertainment…
