Cancer Patients Could Tolerate Chemo Better and Live Longer
There's a new way to protect brain cancer patients from chemotherapy side effects.
Chemo shrinks brain tumors but can also damage bone marrow.
In a new study, Seattle researchers genetically modified the bone marrow stem cells of three patients giving the marrow cells a protective shield.
All three patients were able to tolerate chemotherapy better, which allowed them to live longer.
