Medical News Today reports that a new treatment of "two-headed" antibody, nicknamed ALM, may someday be a fantastic new treatment for some of the stubbornest breast cancers, those that are signaled by protiens created by the Her2 and Her3 breast cancer genes. These are some of the hardest to treat as they have a tendacy to spread even after treatment.

The antibody attacks two seperate molecules on the surface of the cancer cells which is very uncommon. Because this antibody is also very specific to very uncommon molecules it has the potential of not only slowing or possibly preventing the spread of this aggressive breast cancer but also of being used to deliver toxins directly to the cancer without harming other health cells in the body and breast -- a common problem of today's radiation and chemotherapy approaches.
