    Tumor Screening in 3D

    The purpose of chemotherapy is to destroy all cancer cells in the body and heal the patient. Using a process known as 3D tumor screening, Bayer researchers are heading in a new direction in the hunt for active substances that may be able to supplement conventional therapies and make them more effective.
