Studies in animals have shown that a newly developed drug can cure colon cancer, a disease for which there is no effective chemotherapy. The research team, led by Dr. Beppino C. Giovanella of the Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research in Houston, predicted that human tests of the drug could begin in as little as a year. Colon cancer strikes one in 25 Americans, an estimated 107,000 per year, according to the American Cancer Society, and 53,500 victims die each year.

Liu told a cancer symposium in Tokyo that the new drug is not affected by the action of protein "pumps" on cancer cell surfaces that reject most anti-cancer agents before they can be effective.
