How does it work?
This clinical trial will research a possible new drug developed for the treatment of liver fibrosis and lung cancer. Liver fibrosis is scar tissue in the liver from prolonged inflammation. The scar tissue can make the liver work less well and with severe fibrosis the liver can shrivel, this is also called cirrhosis. The drug is expected to reduce the inflammation and to counteract the fibrosis.
Next the drug binds to substances in the body involved in cell division, cell dissolution and the formation of blood vessels. The processes play an important role in the formation and growth of tumors. By taking this drug, the making of tumors could be inhibited.
