A targeted drug, palbociclib, was granted accelerated approval by the US Food and Drug Administration earlier this year for use in women with the most common form of advanced breast cancerPromising advances in research could mean longer, healthier lives for women with breast cancer, the number one cancer in women worldwide, experts said Saturday at a major US cancer conference.
