Re: Universal vaccine against cancer

This would be great. The only problem is this is still in the lab so there will be years and years of clinical trials to go through before it ever comes to market. When it is on market it will cost a small fortune and insurance may or may not decide to pay for it, with a large deductible I'm sure. Best bet is to watch nih.gov for a phase 2 or phase 3 trial that you can qualify for so it will be free.
I did a phase 1 clinical trial on a vaccine that turned my immune system on to kill all cells that Mildly over expressed HER2 neu (not enough to qualify for Herceptin) and it worked great!!! was in remission for over 9 years and when it came back it was HER2 negative. No side-effects was the best part.
