Antidepressants plus Blood thinners for Brain Cancer

glioma

Preliminary animal-model (mice) research has found significant benefit to the combination of antidepressants with anticoagulant drugs for the treatment of gliomas (tumors that occur in the glial cells).  Gliomas make up the majority of malignant brain tumors.

This treatment did not cure the mice but it doubled their life-span as compared to the non-treated group.  But what is particularly promising about this combination of drugs is that it’s affordable and much less toxic than other alternatives.
