Early human test results suggest a vaccine can train cancer patients’ bodies to seek out and destroy tumour cells.

The therapy, which targets a molecule found in 90 per cent of cancers, eventually could provide an injection that would allow patients’ immune systems to fight off common cancers including breast and prostate cancer.

The first results of trials in people, at the Hadassah Medical Centre in Jerusalem, suggest the vaccine can reduce levels of disease. The human work is so preliminary it has yet to be published in a scientific journal.The scientists behind the vaccine hope to conduct more extensive trials to prove it can be effective

against a range of cancers. They believe it could be used to fight small tumours if they are detected early or to help prevent the return and spread of disease in patients who have undergone conventional treatment.

In the safety trial at Hadassah, 10 patients with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, received the vaccine. Seven have finished the treatment and the developer, drug company Vaxil Biotherapeutics, reported all had greater immunity against cancer cells compared with before they were given the vaccine. Vaxil added that three patients were free of detectable cancer following the treatment.

Cancer cells usually evade a patient’s immune system because they are not recognized as a threat. While the immune system usually attacks foreign cells such as bacteria, tumours are formed of the patient’s own cells that have malfunctioned.

Scientists have discovered that a molecule called MUC1, which is found on the surface of cancer cells, can be used to help the immune sys-tem detect tumours. The new vaccine, ImMucin, developed by Vaxil and researchers at Tel Aviv University, uses a section of the molecule to prime the immune system so it can identify and thus destroy cancer cells.

Vaxil suggested that if large-scale trials prove as successful, the vaccine could be available within six years. Initial research on the vaccine, in mice, was published in the journal Vaccine, and suggested the treatment induced “potent” immunity in mice and increased their survival from cancer.
Cancer charities gave the vaccine a cautious welcome. Dr. Kat Arney, at Cancer Research UK, said: “These are very early results that are yet to be fully published, so there’s a lot more work to be done to prove that this particular vaccine is safe and effective in cancer patients.”

  1. My sister has cancer, could you consider her, she won’t be alive in 6 years, please,please help her, she needs it NOW!!!

  2. What excellent news. My husband died from multiple myeloma 11 months ago after being diagnosed less thanthree years ago.If this vaccine is approved it will save lots of other lives. Good work!

  3. Poor scientists who invented this pill, now the huge pharmaceutical conglomerates will have them killed for their efforts.

  4. This is great news but, the drug companies in the US wont let this happen. My wife has breast cancer that has spread to 20 different bones in her body, including her brain. Dont waste these trail tests on rats, use my wife. She wont last six years.

  5. Looks like we all need a trip to the Holy Land. I agree with James, that the US will never let this happen.

  6. Please please, those of you looking for cancer therapy that will cure.. go to or
    This nutritional “Gerson Therapy” has been curing people for several decades. It has been labeled “alternative” by the FDA so is is not practiced by conventional mainstream physicians. You must find someone at you location thru thease websites. Good Luck.
    Charlotte Gerson is my hero… she is 90 years old now and still is on the lecture circuit touting her father’s cures. She does not not need glasses, no sign of disease and walks with great posture with clear skin. >> A walking, talking picture of good health.

    It is worth paying them even if they charge more. I am not their associate.
    Or if you are open minded ONLY IF YOU ARE, MOST ARE NOT,
    you can save your beloved ones from dying…..
