The medical world is abuzz with news that an experimental cancer vaccine is showing promise. A study out in the journal “Nature Medicine” says a small clinical trial of patients with lymphoma at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital is showing “promising results.”
The treatment is referred to as a ‘vaccine’ because it causes a person’s immune system to fight the disease but it is not preventive like the flu shot. The new trial will continue to test on patients with lymphoma as well as those with breast and head-and-neck cancer.
But don’t get too too excited – there will have to be larger trials before even going before the FDA for review.
