Did Anyone Hear About This???

I was just talking to a friend of mine who said, "Did you hear about the new cancer vaccine which is targeted specifically for ovarian and breast cancer???

She said that she heard in on the news last week. Something about the vaccine laying dormant in the lymph nodes until a foreign body, like a cancer cell, attacks. Then this vaccine goes into action.

I heard nothing.....Anyone else??

Hi Rosalie,

If I remember what I read correctly, this vaccine was was tested in about 14 patients who were diagnosed with breast cancer to see if it could prevent a recurrence. I can't remember the exact results but it looked good. I will try to look up more info when I get a chance,

Beth

The following is a link to trials that the NCI is doing for an ovarian cancer vaccine. I looked into this extensively a year ago. Check it out.
