Drug Combo for Rare Form of Cancer Shows Promise in Cell-Based Study
News   Jan 15, 2021

A rare form of lymphoma called Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM), currently has no known cure and only one FDA-approved treatment. Researchers have now targeted specific cell proteins that control DNA information using inhibitors, that were effective in reducing the growth of the cancer cells. When combined with a third drug the combination was even more successful at killing the WM cancer cells.
