Combination treatment, diabetes drug and immunotherapy, may help to fight breast cancer

Researchers in Finland have discovered a drug combination that collaborates with the cancer cells‘ own MYC oncoprotein, which in large quantities causes self-destruction of the cancer cells. When this combination is enhanced with immune system-boosting anti-PD-1 therapy, a more effective and long-lasting therapeutic effect can be seen in mice. These findings pave the way for new treatment combination strategies to harness the body’s natural defenses to fight cancer.
