Finding your perfect match can take time.
A research team from Harvard Medical School and the University of California in Davis has recently discovered that combining two drugs can support the recovery process of pancreatic and liver cancer patients.
Tumor cells that have been killed off during chemotherapy can cause inflammation, leading to metastasis.
To stop this from happening, the team combined two drugs, one to block the enzyme, the second to block a specific metabolic receptor.
Working together, the two compounds cleared the debris left over from prior treatment, preventing metastasis and the further spread of cancer within the body.
