Cancer drug could prevent blindness in preemies
The cancer drug Avastin could help prevent blindness in a group of premature babies who were born before their eyes developed completely, according to a new study. About 50,000 people worldwide are blind — among them singer Stevie Wonder — because of this condition, called "retinopathy of prematurity" for its effects on the retina.
