A great breakthrough in cancer research was revealed last week with the brand-new experiment for cancer treatment at Stanford University when cancer ‘vaccine’ successfully eliminated tumors in infected mice.
The researchers behind the study injected small amounts of two immune-stimulators directly into the solid lymphoma tumors in the mice. They discovered that they eliminated all the traces of cancer in the mice, completely curing 87 out of 90 mice.
The researchers said that even though cancer came back in 3 mice, after a second treatment the tumors were gone. The study showed similar results in mice bearing melanoma, colon, or breast tumors.
According to researchers, this vaccine can be used a quick and relatively inexpensive method for treating cancer. Moreover, the study also finds that this vaccine does not have detrimental side effects as other cancer cures and treatments.
“When we use these two agents together, we see the elimination of tumors all over the body. This approach bypasses the need to identify tumor-specific immune targets and doesn’t require wholesale activation of the immune system or customization of a patient’s immune cells,” said Ronald Levy, MD, and professor of oncology.
One of the 2 agents is already approved to be safe for a human trial, and the other is still tested.
Researchers are now looking for lymphoma patients to test the vaccine in a clinical trial.
What do you think? Will it be successful for humans also? Have scientists finally found the cure for cancer?
