Researchers at Stanford University have successfully eliminated tumors in mice what what is being labeled as a “vaccine” for cancer.

According to the published news item:

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…

The results are so promising results that this form of treatment technique is moving forward to become a clinical trial option for those with lymphoma.

This is a progression of immunotherapy, a relatively new treatment option that relies on the strength of one’s immune system in combating the disease.

Don’t get too excited, though. Even with these results showing promise for mice, often it takes many clinical trials and analysis of results before this could potentially become a treatment option. But it’s certainly a very exciting initial result.
