The right foods 'may help drugs work'

Combining medicines with the right food could improve the effectiveness of drugs and reduce the costs of treating patients, experts say.

The comments come after research showed taking a breast cancer drug with fatty food, rather than on an empty stomach, boosted absorption of the drug.

This means patients could take lower doses, which would reduce costs.

The comments were made by oncologists from the University of Chicago in a Journal of Clinical Oncology editorial.
