  • Drugs ‘promising’ for treating drug-resistant prostate cancer

    London: Researchers have found a new type of drug that could benefit men with aggressive prostate cancer, a drug-resistant disease that is difficult to treat as it does not respond to hormone treatment .In a study on mice done by researchers at the London-based Institute of Cancer Research, Hsp90 inhibitors were found to strip cancer cells of defences against hormone treatments, which makes the drugs particularly promising for treating drug-resistant cancers, the
