A fascinating article. In George Johnson's excellent "The Cancer 
Chronicles", he explains that the reason it is so hard to find a "cure" 
for cancer is that it is a disease that is closely related to life 
itself--the growth of cells. In this instance, scientists learned that a 
malaria treatment had a big drawback--it attacked the placenta of 
pregnant women. Their research also stumbled across the fact that the 
treatment also attacked tumors. Placentas...tumors--what an interesting 
connection.
