Title: Mouse Model of Sarcoma
Description: In 2015, NCI scientists showed that a new type of drug conjugate (a drug that is chemically linked to another drug that helps deliver it directly to cancer cells) called STA-12-8666 completely eradicated tumors in mice with Ewing sarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma, two types of cancer commonly diagnosed in children. In this image of two mice with sarcoma more than 40 days after treatment, a mouse that received a placebo (top) has a large tumor, while the mouse treated with the new drug-conjugate (bottom) has no evidence of cancer.
