One Year Later: Cancer Cure?

This is a robopost that was scheduled a year ago for January 24, 2013.

One year ago today:

Roswell Park Makes Major Announcement on Cancer Vaccine

Roswell Park Cancer Institute held a press conference this morning to announce the development of an investigational cancer vaccine.

Officials from Roswell were on hand to highlight what the vaccine can do. They say the NY-ESO-1 dendritic cell vaccine has the potential to “eradicate cancer cells and prevent disease relapse.”

The new NY-ESO-1 dendritic cell vaccine is expected to show great promise in patients with bladder, brain, breast, esophageal, gastrointestinal, hepatocellular, kidney, lung, melanoma, ovarian, prostate, sarcoma and uterine tumors.

It will be interesting to see if announcements of success have been made.

Update: What I hadn’t counted on a year ago when scheduling this post is that the link to the article would be dead!

Second update: Original source is Roswell Park Launches Landmark Immunotherapy Vaccine Trial

  1. Trawled through the Roswell Park site for news/announcements of progress in the trials and … nothing. But they do appear to have had a good year in fundraising and donations. They also say next to nothing about what their “miracle cure” drugs are.

    Cancer cure research which is attracting more attention was reported recently in The Economist: http://www.economist.com/news/science-and-technology/21569015-snake-venom-being-used-cure-rather-kill-toxic-medicine

      I’ve emailed their press office. We’ll see if there’s any reply.

      EDIT: They replied. They expect results after the trial concludes, in 6-12 months. I hope it works.
