Pitt Researchers Report Cancer Vaccine Success

The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute has announced initial success of a vaccine that triggers the immune response against colon cancer.
 
The study, involving 39 patients at the highest risk for colon cancer, helps to switch the focus of cancer-vaccine research from treatment to prevention. The Pitt trial also advances efforts to use the same vaccine against 80 percent of all cancers, including pancreatic, lung, prostate and breast cancers...

Another reason why I believe that medical science is on the verge of revolutionary breakthrough. I think that we'll have a definitive cure/prevention for cancer within 100-200 years.

In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.
