[MOL] Informational Purposes/Lung Cancer



A recent study in mice shows that the drug Zadaxin (thymosin alpha 1)
may decrease the formation of lung tumors. First, the mice were given
the chemical carcinogen urethane to stimulate formation of lung tumors;
then they were administered thymosin alpha 1. After four months, the
mice treated with thymosin alpha 1 had 40 percent fewer lung tumors than
those treated with urethane alone. Scientists are hopeful that the drug
may eventually be useful in treating lung and other types of cancer. --
