Clinic: Brain Tumor Vaccine Proving Effective

CLEVELAND, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – The Cleveland Clinic is moving into the next phase of a vaccine for glioblastoma brain tumor patients.

It’s called Survax-M.

63 patients have been helped, and three of them are alive 5 and 6 years later with a type of tumor that is normally fatal.

Patient Katy Sanchez from Chelsea Michigan admits you’ll try anything with this diagnosis.

Neuro-Oncologist Doctor Mark Malkin says it’s nothing short of a medical breakthrough.

The next phase introduces a placebo for some patients.
