UCSF develops possible alternative to chemotherapy

Researchers at UCSF Mission Bay have developed a new way to treat cancer. They say it could be safer for patients than chemotherapy.

The team tells KTVU it took years of work to develop, but that this could be a major step in reducing side effects for cancer patients undergoing treatment.

“Definitely a very exciting development, I think,” said Scott Coyle, a member of the research team.” You can come to work really motivated everyday knowing that the things that you are working on or are doing can really have an impact on somebody’s life, hopefully.”
