After all, the MD Anderson Cancer Center is at the forefront of new-fangled biological cancer medicines and has been a bastion of support for the rather toxic cancer treatments that have dominated Western medicine for decades.

No current drugs have the ability to do this, even the newer biological medicines that are more like a gene shotgun.
