A new drug in Phase I trials that has shown encouraging results in pre-clinical trials against both hematologic and solid tumors. MLN-9708. Also in Phase I trials. Researchers at Millennium expect this drug to work better than Velcade. Plus, the drug may also be available as a pill! Of course, the folks at Millennium are keeping the details pretty “close to the vest.” They are also understandably very excited about a number of other new drugs in the pipeline which are expected to work against prostate and lung cancer.
