PLAIN old household bleach might be the key to fighting some cancers, as the chemical seems to boost the efficacy of cancer vaccines.
Cancers can develop when a patient's immune system is unable to recognise cancerous cells and kill them. Attempts have been made to prime such people's immune systems by giving them vaccines based on dead cancer cells. However, the results have been patchy, and seldom trigger immune responses strong enough to wipe out the cancer.
Chain thinks that the immune system is geared to recognise cells killed in this way because many of our white blood cells destroy bacteria by producing microscopic quantities of a type of bleach.
