The approach is called a cancer vaccine, although it treats the disease rather than prevents it.
At a cancer conference Sunday, researchers said one such vaccine kept a common form of lymphoma from worsening for more than a year.
Experimental vaccines against three other cancers prostate, the deadly skin disease melanoma and an often fatal childhood tumor called neuroblastoma also gave positive results in late-stage testing in recent weeks, after decades of struggles in the lab.
That seems really hopeful to me, and the methodology of FINally being able to cause the immune system to be able to differentiate between normal cells and cancerous ones...... wonderful!
