New ‘killer’ cancer treatment stops one third of tumours growing


The four most common cancers in the UK are lung cancer, bowel cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer. In recent days a new treatment called AFM24 has been found to be able to stop one in three tumours growing in trials. The treatment has been found to work in those with advanced forms of lung, bowel, and pancreatic cancers. Although not one of the most common cancers, pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest.
