Clinical trial for vaccine for HERS positive breast cancer
judyfams posted:
Dr. Brian Czerniecki of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania has developed a vaccine for women diagnosed with DCIS HERS positive breast cancer.

This video explains how he develops the vaccine from the woman's white blood cells and that the clinical trials are very promising.

There is also another video where the women who have been a part of this trial speak about the vaccine and their results.

I found this exciting and wanted to pass this information on to the members of this forum so we can know that there is ongoing research to find a preventive for breast cancer rather than us getting breast cancer and having to undergo treatment and hope for a cure!

Judy I think this is great news for those women that tested positive for hers2. It shows that research for breast cancer is being done and we all need to continue to help fight for the cure. I tested triple neg so this will not help me but I feel very happy for those women that it may help. Any little thing that comes out that may help someone else from having to go through what I did is great news. Thank you so much for your time researching and getting the information to use. I am showing this to a friend of mine that has a friend going through this right now. It may help her, plus it gives us all some hope for the future. Thank you again and angel hugs to you Roberta
