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.

    I honestly think there is a cure for cancer, but it is such a money racket, that they had rather see people die, than see them cured. I am so fed up with the Government, Roy Cooper, and DSS that I don't know what to do. DSS is 100% for non-americans, and to ---- with our own people who are struggling to make ends meet. I talked with someone at DSS and she admitted that what they do is wrong, and for this reason she is no longer withl them. Way to do. Someone has to show they care.
