Latest news: AML vaccine research and trial

Post by sophie » 06 Jan 2010 11:08

Research news at King's College Hospital
"Scientists at King’s have developed a vaccine treatment for Leukaemia that can be used to stop the disease returning after chemotherapy or bone marrow transplant. The vaccine is due to be tested on patients for the first time. Eventually it is hoped the drug, which activates the body's own immune system against the leukaemia, could be used to treat other types of cancers. " KCL website.
