I’m a little shocked that this bit of news didn’t get a whole lot more media attention. It looks like the evil drug companies aren’t going to be happy, but cancer victims and their families now have a reason to be excited…

Investigators at the University of Alberta have recently reported that a drug previously used in humans for the treatment of rare disorders of metabolism is also able to cause tumor regression in a number of human cancers growing in animals. This drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), appears to suppress the growth of cancer cells without affecting normal cells, suggesting that it might not have the dramatic side effects of standard chemotherapies.
