Researchers say study results point to possible cancer ‘vaccine’

Chicago  New research published in a Stanford University study shows that a cure for cancer may lie in a new technique that wiped out cancer in lab mice using their own immune systems.

In the Stanford University study [], researchers injected immune-boosting agents directly into tumors in mice. The therapy not only wiped out the tumors, it also eliminated all traces of cancer in the animals.

Dr. Timothy Kuzel is an oncologist assisting on medical trials for human cancer patients using a similar immunotherapy technique that works to boost the immune system. He says that because these new techniques boost the immune system rather than attacking cancer directly, there are far fewer side effects than those associated with treatments like chemotherapy.
