Behind recent cancer drug,
a 30-year history of scientific breakthroughs


Jean Tang, MD, PhD,
with 101-year-old Winnie Bazurto

Three years ago, 101-year-old winnie Bazurto noticed a strange growth on her lower eyelid. She didn't worry about it initially, but in 2012 it started getting bigger, fast -- doubling in size every two weeks and growing into the orbit of her right eye, restricting her vision.

Diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma, the most common skin cancer, her main concern was that the painful growth would infiltrate the eyeball, possibly causing blindness. Bazurto's options for treatment didn't look good, until the option of a new drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration emerged.

Anne Chang, MD, Anthony Oro, MD, PhD,
and Jean Tang, MD, PhD

Sixteen years ago, Dr. Anthony Oro was part of the team that discovered the connection between the hedgehog pathway and human cancer. In February 2012, the first hedgehog pathway inhibitor was approved by the FDA. 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.
