Treatment For Cancer

For something that sounds sooo sooo wonderful, this was published in my local Town Crier Pennysaver. Has anyone else seen or heard of this?

(NAPS) One of the very broad spectrum cancer treatments may come from scientists at GeneMax Corp.,a biotech firm. The new vaccine turns on the bodys natural defenses against tumors using proteins within cells that are essential in the processing of tumor antigens-the signals that the immune system uses to recognize and destroy cancer cells. In many major cancers, the TAP pathway is blocked or turned off. The vaccine can restore the TAP protein. For more information visit

I've heard about new treatments like this for various, specific, cancers, like lung cancer and pancreatic cancers. Also there is a vaccine for cervical cancer that it is in the works. It looks promising and exciting!

Hi Rosalie,

I haven't seen anything about it--but I will look it up! Thanks for the heads-up. I went to their website but couldn't find anything about their research--did I miss it?

Also, just wanted to clarify something about the cervical cancer vaccine vs. other cancer vaccines. Since, generally speaking, cervical cancer is caused by a known, characterized virus, it is much easier to get a working vaccine going for it as opposed to other cancers--though certainly it's a future possibility.

Thanks for posting the link, Debbie, it was a very interesting read. The stategy makes sense--p53 is usually a tumor suppressor, but it goes haywire in cancer cells and shuts down, allowing cancers to grow. There is more p53 in cancer cells than in "normal" cells so hopefully the vaccine would recognize the cells with more p53 and attack those cells preferentially. I guess we'll see in about a year!
