Tamoxifen is a drug commonly given to both men and women who have breast cancer. It might someday also be given to mesothelioma patients. It turns out that the main ingredient of tamoxifen seems to work against mesothelioma tumors. The main ingredient in tamoxifen blocks estrogen. Breast cancer feeds off estrogen. Apparently so does mesothelioma.
