A drug used to treat indigestion – found in medicine cabinets across the country – has anti-cancer properties, researchers are claiming in a newly published paper.

The drug cimetidine can increase survival rates in colorectal cancer cases, according to the study published in ecancer.


“Cimetidine is an interesting drug as it’s very safe, very well-known, and has clinical results in cancer that have been confirmed in a number of trials,” says lead author Dr. Pan Pantziarka, a member of the Repurposing Drugs in Oncology (ReDO) project.
