Scientists Study Breast Cancer Vaccine

Scientists Study Breast Cancer Vaccine
MAY 31, 2010 - Researchers are a giant step closer to tackling breast cancer in the same way they've nearly eradicated polio, measles and small pox. Scientists have a vaccine that works in mice and they're ready to take the next step.

Scientists at the Cleveland Clinic spent the last 8 years developing a single shot that prevents the disease in mice.
The vaccine fires up the immune system to target a protein found in the majority of breast cancers. It halts the growth of existing tumors and prevents new ones from forming.. without damaging healthy tissue.

"Since breast cancer rises dramatically around the age of 40, that is the target population. We're eager to vaccinate adult women," said Vincent Tuohy of Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute.

Scientists believe the discovery holds promise for the prevention of other types of cancers but say the testing process in humans will take time.
If it's safe and effective we could see a shot to prevent breast cancer in about 10 years.
