of the chamber where they had previously received toluene as compared to the saline-treated animals, which spent 349 seconds in the "toluene" chamber. "GVG significantly blocked toluene-seeking behavior in these rats," Dewey said. Earlier resea...
International study findings link acne-like rash to effectiveness of new targeted cancer treatment
...Van Cutsem said that the acne-like rash was also a side
effect of other EGFR inhibitors but it was not yet known why the rash occurred. This was still a subject of research. "We saw independently reviewed partial tumour responses in 12% of patients and a median survival time of 6.6 months," he said. "In t...

effects and possibly benefit from other treatments that would be more effective for them. Another drug called 06-Benzyl-guanine a substrate for the MGMT enzyme was currently being tested to see if it would deplete the activity of MGMT. Combined wit...
