Cancer ‘vaccine’ eliminates tumors in mice

January 31, 2018

Collaboration between the Levy Lab and the Gambhir Lab has developed a technique where activated T cells in tumors eliminated even distant metastases in mice. Lymphoma patients are being recruited to test the technique in a clinical trial.

Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases.
