COLUMBUS, OH (WKOW) -- Could a pill stop leukemia in its tracks? Doctors at Ohio State University say they've witnessed the breakthrough in a clinical trial.
Of the 900 patients participating in the study, every one has gone into remission. That includes Dennis Hickey; Doctors gave him 6 months to live, but he feels better than ever.
Researchers say the drug ibrutinib works like a light switch, turning off the power to the cancer cell.
Hickey says the pills are giving him an opportunity to grow old and see his eleven grandchildren.
