Breast Cancer Vaccine?
I haven’t read the study yet, but Reuters is reporting that an experimental breast cancer vaccine appears to be safe. The vaccine is intended to target a specific kind of breast cancer, which the report indicates represents about 20-30% of cases, although I’m not an expert on that topic. The study was a Phase I trial, which means it is in the early stages of research and the investigators were looking at safety and dosage, and were not focusing specifically on how well the vaccine actually works. A good result on safety, though, means further research on the usefulness of the vaccine can proceed. I’ll try to track down the study report and have more later.
