Activase

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Activase is a drug produced by Genentech, a Roche Group member, that is indicated for the treatment of acute Ischemic Stroke.

It is currently being studied by both Genentech and independent cancer research projects as a treatment for particular types of cancer[1] with promising but as yet inconclusive results. It is also being used for cancer patients because of its side effect of preventing plaque in and around tissue with ports or shunts or chronic bleeding from tissue resistant to healing.[2]

Its woo level in the cancer fight is quite low.
