Hedgehog Pathway Research


Anne Chang, MD, Anthony Oro, MD, PhD,

This new drug has been shown to be effective in treating and preventing the most common cancer in the United States, basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the skin in three independent studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) on June 7, 2012.
