ScienceDaily (May 14, 2008) — While researching new ways to stop the progression of cancer, researchers at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, have discovered a compound that has shown to prevent cancer in the laboratory.
The compound, which still faces several rounds of clinical trials, successfully stopped normal cells from turning into cancer cells and inhibited the ability of tumors to grow and form blood vessels. If successful tests continue, researchers eventually hope to create a daily pill that would be taken as a cancer preventive.
“This compound was effective against the 12 types of cancers that it was tested on,” said Doris Benbrook, Ph.D., principle investigator and researcher at the OU Cancer Institute.

Cancer preventive...Taken every day. Dream of pharmaceutical companies. Since it is still in vitro ,no assurance it will work in organism, but if it reaches phase 1 - then it should really be monitored closely.
