New study involving the cancer drug Avastin

Posted: Updated:

Two new studies suggest the drug, Avastin, may not prolong patients lives who suffer from Glioblastoma. 

Both studies found Avastin worked no better than a placebo when it came to improving the length of survival from the rare and deadly form of brain cancer.

Avastin lost FDA approval for treating breast cancer in 2011.
