article imageSpanish Team Create a Vaccine for Cancer

Researchers at Zaragoza University claim they have developed a vaccine which could save 1000's of lives from the life threatening disease.
In a recent report Typically Spanish stated that Juan Ignacio Aguiló, Alberto Anel and Julián Pardo have collectively developed a vaccine which successfully destroys the two types of cancer cells responsible for leukaemia and lymphomas. Tests were carried out on mice and the positive indications of their findings will be proved once they are able to test on humans although, it is too early to tell whether this might be possible to undertake successfully in the future.
In as quickly as 48 hours, the mice reject the cancer cells with the help of the vaccine and then the animals’ own defences halt further development of the disease.
The trio, all from The University of Zaragoza, in Aragón started their research 4 years ago and have seen success with leukaemia and lymphomas type cancers with the support of some French Scientists who are based at the Molecular Genetics Institute in Montpellier, France.
According to Journal of Cancer Research, Scientific researchers in Washington made similar claims that they have developed a cancer-fighting gene which ultimately rejects further growth of the deadly cells.
They are currently continuing their trials to include other organs that are commonly under threat from the deadly disease which affects 1 in 3 humans annually.
