A new strategy in the war on cancer: David Agus on TED.com

Posted by: Emily McManus

Traditionally, David Agus says, cancer treatments have had a short-sighted focus on the offending individual cells. He suggests a new, cross-disciplinary approach, using atypical drugs, computer modeling and protein analysis to treat and analyze the whole body. (Recorded at TEDMED, November 2009, San Diego, CA. Duration: 23:44)
