Researchers say we're closer than ever to winning the war on cancer.  New findings presented at The American Society of Clinical Oncology Conference show a sharp increase in potential cancer treatments, including smart drugs that only destroy harmful cells - while protecting healthy ones - and others that help the immune system attack cancer.

Better testing is also being developed to predict which treatments will work best for each individual patient.
