DCA is a potentially new anti-cancer agent

Dichloroacetate or DCA is a potentially new anti-cancer agent.
Original Article by Top Cancer News
.
Canadian researcher Evangelos Michelakis, associate professor of medicine at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, has stumbled upon something quite remarkable -- a potentially new anti-cancer agent called dichloroacetate, or DCA.
.
Michelakis and his colleagues have successfully used DCA to shrink human lung, breast, and brain tumors in both lab rats and test tubes. And while this type of research may not ordinarily generate a lot of excitement, this specific study is creating a buzz because DCA has been safely used in humans for decades, without adverse side effects.
.
Sadly, this drug -- that appears to work remarkably well -- may never benefit cancer patients. All because no one stands to make billions of dollars from it.

So Im just wondering why we havent heard about this on the BBC eh! There might be a good reason why in the last year this story hasnt broken, but I dont recall anything. Or perhaps as commented about the loss of profits to the Pharma Industry... Noooo, never I hear you say. - No?
