Breast Cancer Vaccine?

Researchers at Wayne State University say they've developed a vaccine that reduced HER2-positive tumors in mice without side effects.

HER2-positive breast cancer can be hard to treat because many patients develop a resistance to the traditional therapies used to treat it. But scientists say the vaccine could be used to treat women with this aggressive form of cancer, help prevent a recurrence, and could even be given to healthy women to prevent the development of these tumors. However, much more research needs to be done before this can be applied in humans.
