Ten years ago, no one ever thought of winning a battle against cancer. Well, its not impossible anymore! Doctors now advise targeted therapies to attack cancer with new drugs. Take the case of breast cancer for instance. Inducing trastuzumab (Herceptin) and lapatinib (TyKerb) in breast cancer can prevent a re occurrence of this traumatic disease.

AIDS - a disease that slowly drains life out of person can now be won over by HAAT. The abbreviation stands for highly active antiretroviral therapy and is a combination therapy approach to fight the disease.

The next development is a big step in the history of medical science - Robotic Surgery! With this, removing a kidney will not leave a 10 inch scar. Instead, a single incision at the naval can do the job. I’m sure you haven't heard of that before.
