A breast cancer vaccine designed by researchers at WUSTL is safe in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Preliminary evidence from the small clinical trial, led by William Gillanders, MD, also suggests the vaccine helped slow the cancer’s progression.

A breast cancer vaccine developed at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is safe in patients with metastatic breast cancer, results of an early clinical trial indicate. Preliminary evidence also suggests that the vaccine primed the patients’ immune systems to attack tumor cells and helped slow the cancer’s progression.

The new vaccine causes the body’s immune system to home in on a protein called mammaglobin-A, found almost exclusively in breast tissue. The protein’s role in healthy tissue is unclear, but breast tumors express it at abnormally high levels, past research has shown.

Le Stilboestrol lui avait été prescrit car elle faisait des fausses couches a répétition. Comme elle a eu beaucoup de mal pour avoir des enfants et que c’était son désir le plus cher elle a gardé tout ce qui était en lien avec ses grossesses, voilà pourquoi elle avait gardé les ordonnances. ”
