Scientists Have Discovered A Treatment That Can Destroy Breast Cancer Tumors In 11 Days Without Chemos

6The study included various groups of women diagnosed with breast cancer

22 Women (control group) did not receive any treatment, 51 women were given only Herceptin with a dosage of 6 mg per body weight on the first and 8th day. 57 women were given Tykerb 1500 mg per day. The results proved different for all. The control group did not show any changes in the condition. Neither did the group who had given Tykerb. But those who took Herceptin showed something surprising. The Herceptin group showed very positive pathological changes. One woman had minimal residual disease.

7The second study included the combination of drugs

The second part of the study involved 127 women diagnosed with breast cancer. They were all separated into three groups. The first control group of 29 women received no treatment. 32 women received only Herceptin while 66 women received a combination of Herceptin and Tykerb. The results again were surprising.

8Surprising results with the multi drug medication

In the control group, there was no response or changes, in the Herceptin group, there were no pathological responses although one woman had minimal residual disease. But what surprised scientists was the Herceptin-Tykerb group.  In this group, 7 women showed a total pathological response and 11 showed minimal residual diseases.

9What is minimal residual disease?

Minimal residual disease is what occurs when a disease like cancer is in remission. Just a few number of cancer cells are found in the patient or the bone marrow. In most cases, patients will show no symptoms of the disease. This was a very promising sign for the scientists in relation to the combined drug therapy.
