New Vaccine Being Tested In Prostate Cancer Patients

ng Immunologist Philip O. Livingston, M.D., who calls the advance "more promising than other approaches."

The new vaccine is being given to patients who have undergone prostate cancer surgery, hoping to ward off a recurrence. Though it is too early to know whether a series of vaccinations will provide an adequate defense, Livingston says patients are definitely producing antibodies against Tn. Scientists hope the vaccines will specifically attack prostate cancer cells, thereby permanently curbing cancer and reducing the side effects usually associated with chemotherapy.
