Breast cancer- affecting 1 in every 8 Canadian women- is one of the most dangerous cancers known around the globe.

For 20 years now, a team at the Washington University School of Medecine has been conducting trials for a breast cancer vaccine. No trials done by this group have been successful- until now.

The vaccine has officially passed its first human trials, making phase 1 of the vaccine project successful! During this phase, the vaccine was thoroughly tested, and conclusions were made that it was safe for humans, as well as very effective in avoiding the growth of cancer tumor cells.

Phase 2 of the vaccine project is now in process.
