Cancer 'vaccine' eliminates tumors in mice, researchers find

Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found.

The researchers believe the local application of very small amounts of the agents could serve as a rapid and relatively inexpensive cancer therapy that is unlikely to cause the adverse side effects often seen with bodywide immune stimulation.

"When we use these two agents together, we see the elimination of tumors all over the body," said Ronald Levy, MD, professor of oncology. "This approach bypasses the need to identify tumor-specific immune targets and doesn't require wholesale activation of the immune system or customization of a patient's immune cells."

One agent is currently already approved for use in humans; the other has been tested for human use in several unrelated clinical trials. A clinical trial was launched in January to test the effect of the treatment in patients with lymphoma.

Levy, who holds the Robert K. and Helen K. Summy Professorship in the School of Medicine, is the senior author of the study, which will be published Jan. 31 in Science Translational Medicine. Instructor of medicine Idit Sagiv-Barfi, PhD, is the lead author.

'Amazing, bodywide effects'

Let's hope... God knows far to many people have been lost, scarred and for ever had their lives turned upside down in some way shape or form.

It will never see the light of day.

There is too much money being made in treating cancer and the powers that be won't let a real cure be made available.

What makes you think "Big Pharma" won't bundle and sell the "two agents" for enormous profits? Patient-care advocates/lobbyists will make a great deal of noise if there's an effective treatment they think is being suppressed.

Can't do that. It would destroy a perfectly good conspiracy theory.

They are finding treatments that work all the time. They just have to keep working because their are so many thousands of variations.
