#1123: MM- Progress in Colon Cancer Vaccine

The Staying Young Show 2.0 - Entertaining | Educational | Health & Wellness

Release Date: 05/30/2019

Do you have a family history of colon cancer?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  A colorectal cancer vaccine may be available in the near future.  Results from phase 1 of a recent clinical trial were published in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer and they were promising.  The trial consisted of 10 participants with either type 1 or 2 colon cancer.  The vaccine was administered to each individual and they returned for blood work at days 30, 90, and 180.  The blood work showed evidence of activated killer T cells— which are used to destroy colon cancer cells.  These results pave the way for more research.  The vaccine also had no serious side effects! Without a family history of colon cancer, screenings should begin at age 50.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
