Once You Quit Smoking, Take Iloprost to Prevent Lung Cancer

Iloprost is a drug that treats conditions like pulmonary artery disease, scleroderma, and Raynaud's phenomenon. But now researchers are testing to see if it could prevent lung cancer in former smokers. The outcome looks promising.

Preventing Lung Cancer After You Quit...

At a meeting of the American Thoracic Society in New Orleans, researchers announced that iloprost looked promising when it came to preventing lung cancer in those who had given up the habit but not in those who continued smoking.

The study, conducted on people who quit smoking, found that those who took the drug for six months had improved lung function, which means that iloprost may lessen their chances for developing lung cancer.
