In my opinion, we should be focusing on reducing intake of cancer-causing agents for healthy people and treatments such as this for cancer patients. Meddling with the human immune system, in particular with growth receptors, is bound to have side effects for potential regenerative treatments.
Reshared post from +Maria Stepanov Sommerfield
Although it still looks like it needs further testing before it is approved for widespread use, this vaccine looks promising
A vaccine that can train cancer patients' own bodies to seek out and destroy tumour cells has been developed by scientists
"When a vaccinated patient's immune system encounters cancer cells, however, the far larger concentration of MUC1 causes it to attack and kill the tumour.
As MUC1 is found in 90 per cent of all cancers, the researchers believe it could be used to combat the growth and spread of a wide range of cancers.
In a safety trial at the Hadassah Medical Centre in Jerusalem, ten patients suffering from multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer, have now received the vaccine.
Seven of the patients have now finished the treatment and Vaxil reported that all of them had greater immunity against cancer cells compared to before they were given the vaccine."
