To Be Used for Treatment of Cancer
An important discovery has been made by American scientists. During research at the Texas University three years ago it was evidenced, that propranolol, a drug used in cardiology, is also effective for treatment of cancer. It kills cells of angiosarcoma, a commonly metastasizing malignant tumor. That fact was observed during laboratory experiments and confirmed with results of clinical trials conducted in patients with advanced angiosarcoma. Propranolol treatment resulted in complete remission.
It is quite probable, that propranolol will be widely used in treatment of cancer. At least, regulatory authorities of the EU assigned it a status of an orphan drug for treatment of soft tissue sarcoma.
