Chinese Medicines for Leukemia

The new leukemia treatment which has been inspired from an ancient medicine uses arsenic trioxide, which been commonly used in the Chinese medicines. The US food and drug administration has already approved arsenic trioxide as a regular medical treatment back in 2000. The researches have also proved that the patients used this treatment were more healthy than the ones who opted usual chemotherapy.
These results mean that arsenic trioxide should be the new standard for patients who can use it says Dr. Richard Stone who is the director of the adult acute leukemia program at the Dana-Farber cancer institute.
