The first human trials of this experimental, cancer-killing drug could change everything

I pray that this drug is a success.

Properly mixed, the medicine came out as a dark brown liquid. A nurse brought the intravenous bag to the side of a recliner, where a man with brain cancer sat. The nurse hung the plump bag on a stand and prepared the treatment for delivery. The moment had arrived for BXQ-350 to meet its first human patient.

For the man, and for the medicine, the stakes could not have been higher.

BXQ-350, by Bexion Pharmaceuticals of Covington, Kentucky, is a first-of-its-kind cancer treatment, a new approach discovered, developed and tested in Greater Cincinnati. The innovative drug is made from a human protein and does something unlike any other: It weaponizes the special mechanics of cancer to destroy it, without affecting healthy cells.
