Biologists Identify New Targets for Cancer Vaccines
Dear Longevity Insider,
Anil Bajnath MD here with your Monday roundup.
Live long enough, and you’ve probably known someone who was diagnosed with cancer. For the past 10 years, scientists have riggorously explored how to fight cancer with a vaccine.
While the FDA hasn’t approved any of these cancer vaccines, some show promise in clinical trials to treat some types of lung cancer and melanoma.
And a recent study just identified new targets for these types of vaccines.
Tyler Jacks, the David H. Koch Professor of Biology, a member of the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, adds:
This study highlights the importance of exploring the details of immune responses against cancer deeply. We can now see that not all anticancer immune responses are created equal, and that vaccination can unleash a potent response against a target that was otherwise effectively ignored.
So what’s this team of biologists’ latest discovery on fighting cancer?
To your longevity,

P.S. Studies prove that many of today’s diseases and ailments stem from toxic cells in your body. Here’s my latest research on how those cells form and a method used to flush them out of the system.
