7. In addition, two studies will be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncologists' annual meeting in May. The first shows significant tumor growth retardation in animals fed BeneFin shark cartilage orally versus the control, and the second shows stabilization of fast-growing glioblastoma in human patients.
