FDA Approves “Breakthrough Therapy” Drug for Breast Cancer

Breakthrough-drugThe drug, Ibrance (palbociclib), does not follow the traditional methods of treatment for postmenopausal women with ER+/HER2- metastatic breast cancer.

This means that the cancer cells can no longer reproduce, thereby halting the growth and spread of the desease throughout the body.
