Breast Cancer Vaccine for Women


Story by Gloria Silas.



A vaccine that uses the body’s own immune system to attack tumor cells has been shown to be effective as a killer of established cancerous breast tumors in mice.  The same vaccine was effective at preventing breast cancer in mice that were genetically altered to develop breast cancers.  And this vaccine was effective with only one administration.The vaccine enabled the mice to develop antibodies powerful enough to prevent breast cancers and kill existing cancers by using the mouse’s own immune system to fight against it.
