+ - Could This Be The End Of Cancer?

Submitted by adeelarshad82
adeelarshad82 (1482093) writes "It's a disease that kills millions a year and a slew of hoped-for miracle treatments have gone nowhere until recently. In an interesting change of events, scientists say vaccines could hold the key—not just to a cure but to wiping out cancer forever. Shari Baker, who was diagnosed with stage IV (metastatic) breast cancer in 2005, signed up for clinical trial at the University of Washington. A vaccine was injected into her upper arm; she got five more shots over the next five months. Today, with scans detecting no cancer anywhere, Baker seems to have beaten some extremely stiff odds."
