New US breast cancer drug

Patients tested say they did not suffer serious chemotherapy side-effects.



    Touted as a major victory in the battle against breast cancer, researchers in the United States have announced a new class of chemotherapy drug.

    Described by scientists as an "armed antibody", the drug is a "magic bullet" treatment, killing cancer cells without destroying the patients' quality of life.
