Personalized Cancer Vaccine Shows Promise in Mice

A team of researchers has developed a vaccine in mice that they believe can be used to inoculate a person against cancer, even before tumors develop.

In a study published in the journal Cell Stem Cell on February 15, mice were treated with stem cells created from adult tissue, called induced pluripotent stem cells. These stem cells have similar properties to cancer cells, and by combining them with a small amount of bacteria in a vaccine, the team successfully activated an immune response.
