Have you seen breast cancer try to take your life and those around you? Have you feared that your daughter, mother, wife, or sister may be diagnosed with this disease? Wouldn’t you do anything you could to prevent breast cancer from taking the lives of your loved ones?
As luck would have it, there might be something in the works right now that could potentially prevent breast cancer in 95 percent of cases. That’s right, 95 percent!
Dr. Vincent Tuohy of the Cleveland Clinic and his team designed a breast cancer vaccine. The vaccine was found to prevent the disease in 100 percent of the mice tested.“We believe that this vaccine will someday be used to prevent breast cancer in adult women in the same way that vaccines have prevented many childhood diseases,” Dr. Vincent Tuohy stated in a press release. “If it works in humans the way it works in mice, this will be monumental. We could eliminate breast cancer.”
Phase I clinical trials are expected to begin within the next two years. It will take approximately three years to complete Phase I studies. The Phase IA trial will follow patients with triple-negative breast cancer who have undergone surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation treatment.
