A more recent vaccine that has proven successful in mice may be headed to human trials very soon. This is a vaccine that was developed by a team at Stanford University and could easily be one of the most monumental things in current times.
This vaccine is said to essentially attack tumors all over the body after a mere one injection into a tumor that was targetted specifically. Researchers claim that this prompts a defensive reaction all over the body and targets other tumors that may be spreading throughout the body. In recent lab testing on mice, these researchers have been able to thus far eliminate some of the most aggressive spreading cancers in mice.
One of the best things about this vaccine is that it is thought that it will be both cost-effective and not be likely to have negative side-effects, can you say win-win? Those partaking in the trials will only be given one shot which will be a combination of two vaccines. This shot may even be able to work on multiple kinds of cancers and produce hope for tons of people.
“When we use these two agents together, we see the elimination of tumors all over the body.
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.”
“Our approach uses a one-time application of very small amounts of two agents to stimulate the immune cells only within the tumor itself. In the mice, we saw amazing, bodywide effects, including the elimination of tumors all over the animal.”
“Only the tumor that shares the protein targets displayed by the treated site is affected. We’re attacking specific targets without having to identify exactly what proteins the T cells are recognizing.”

I wonder what the future holds for this vaccine. Sure, this is quite a controversial topic, but we can only hope something good comes of it in the end. At the very least we can hope it doesn’t turn out how ” Iam Legend” did.
