Doctors hopeful about new breast cancer vaccine
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Researchers in Cleveland have spent more than a decade working to create a vaccine to prevent breast cancer.
The thought behind the vaccine, why not prevent it in the first place.
They are working to use a person’s own immune system to protect them against developing breast cancer.
It’s much like vaccines used against childhood infectious diseases like polio and measles.
Doctors at the Cleveland clinic say the next step is to get permission from the FDA to test the vaccine on women, that could take at least two years.
Once it is approved for clinical trials, the drug will be about 10 years away from the market place.
