Avatar f tn ..European scientists have successfully tested in animals a vaccine for Hepatitis C, a debilitating viral disease that can cause liver failure and cancer, according to a study released this week. Currently, there is no human vaccine for Hepatitis C, which is spread through contaminated blood and kills some 350,000 people worldwide each year, according to the World Health Organisation. Between 130 and 170 million people are thought to be infected with chronic forms of the disease.
Avatar m tn We have evaluated the potential of a novel vaccine formulation comprising particulate hepatitis B surface (HBsAg) and core antigen (HBcAg), and the saponin-based ISCOMATRIX™ adjuvant for its ability to stimulate T and B cell responses in C57BL/6 mice and its ability to break tolerance in syngeneic HBV transgenic (HBVtg) mice.
3191940 tn?1447268717 That's an interesting article! First, I did not know mice got Alzheimer's. Do you think they know they are mice when they do? How do they know the mice have Alzheimer's? Okay, I'll stop. But really, how fantastic would that be to have a preventative measure for this debilitating health issue? Heck ya I'd take that vaccine! The article didn't say how long until it will be tested on humans. I hope the benefit they see in mice carries over. I'm all for it!
Avatar f tn I have had shingles 3 times in the past-years before Breast Cancer and the shingles vaccine coming out. I currently take Arimidex and wonder if I should get the shingles vaccine. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/339304'>Shingles Vaccine for Breast Cancer Survivors</a>.
Avatar n tn WE are quite different than mice ! Even Mammograms are considered a risk for developing Breast Cancer and they are the prime method of discovery of the disease. Regards ....
Avatar f tn Have the clinical trials for the E75 vaccine been completed, and is it for use with early stage breast cancer or only for late stage? I have Her2/neu positive breast cancer, stage 1 or stage 2a and was told that this vaccine might be helpful to me.
Avatar n tn I am constantly researching OVC treatments. I have not found that any of you have spoken about Merck's quest for a vaccine. They now have the Cervical Cancer Vaccine ( Gardasil) and are working on an OVC vaccine. They are in the second trial and need one more before the FDA approves. By giving it to patients with OVC in recurrence, they have prevented it from returning for two years. They are tweeking that and want total prevention.

Avatar n tn My nineteen year old daughter has been diagnosed with having fibroadnoma cysts (3) in her breasts. We have a history of breast cancer in both maternal grandmother's, and my brother had a breast removed to Cancer as well. Our doctor says that these cysts are likely benign but his words do not give me much comfort considering the family history. Even if these are benign, at what point should she become alarmed as these things appear and keep growing bigger?
Avatar f tn m losing my mind and have convinced myself I have lymphoma or breast cancer.
29837 tn?1414534648 I did that in 2005 with no side effects or weirdness. The Hep A vaccine is one shot, the Hep B vaccine is three shots over a six month period. From what I understand, both A & B can be contracted for example: If you go to a buffet and eat infected food (mice feces, etc.), go on a cruise and buy food from street vendors, restaurants in foreign lands, and so on... Ask your doctor if these vaccines are right for you....
Avatar n tn My 13 year old daughter developed breast tenderness and then a golfball size lump in her breast about 1 month after her first injection of Gardisil. She spent 4 days in the hospital with a range of IV antibiotics. I did not think of the 2 being related at the time. Have similar side effects been reported (or possibly underreported)?
Avatar m tn just knowing this has eased my mind, and knowing that there will eventually be a light at the end of the tunnel, makes life so much easier. the vaccine has had 100% effective rate in mice in curing hpv when they have already been infected, and they are currently running human trials to get approval. I thought i would share this with all of my fellow sufferers, because i know the pain everyone one of us is going through, and ill do anything i can to help.
Avatar m tn when they ll test on humans and show hcc cure they will have a value, a study on mice alone has very little value...
163305 tn?1333668571 Marijuana, already shown to reduce pain and nausea in cancer patients, may be promising as a cancer-fighting agent against some of the most aggressive forms of the disease. A growing body of early research shows a compound found in marijuana - one that does not produce the plant's psychotropic high - seems to have the ability to "turn off" the activity of a gene responsible for metastasis in breast and other types of cancers.
Avatar n tn They now have the Cervical Cancer Vaccine ( Gardasil) and are working on an OVCA vaccine. They are in the second trial and need one more before the FDA approves. By giving it to patients with OVC in recurrence, they have prevented it from returning for two years. They are tweeking that and want total prevention. They have also been successful with prostrate cancer and as you heard last week, skin cancer. It does not seem that OVC patients are very vocal for our cause.
428185 tn?1203741789 Patrick Ling and a team of researchers injected mice with prostate cancer cells. Then, they divided the mice into two groups. They fed one group of mice water fortified with a form of vitamin E called gamma-tocotrienol or y-T3. The other group of mice drank regular water. Researchers found that 70 percent of the vitamin E mice never went on to develop prostate cancer tumors, despite being injected with malignant cells. And, yes, the remaining 30 percent did develop prostate cancer.
Avatar m tn Such kind of liver damage can cause irreversible liver failure and even cancer. Researchers from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) have discovered an important new protective role of the Fra-1 protein, which neutralizes the damage caused by agents, such as the analgesic drug acetaminophen (Paracetamol). This is the first study to reveal a function of Fra-1 in protecting this important organ. The study is published in the journal Hepatology.
Avatar f tn A seven-year, $2 million NIH-funded clinical study in 2011 found that Turkey Tail mycelium improves immune function when dosed daily to women with stage I–III breast cancer. Immune response was dose-dependent, with no adverse effects. PSP has been shown to significantly enhance immune status in 70 to 97 percent of cancer patients. Turkey tail is also being used to treat many different infections, including aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, E.
1793863 tn?1325002184 Dear Ivankaivanova, I understand your concern, presumably after reading an article on MMTV (Mouse mammary tumor virus). However, though gene sequences of MMTV have been found in human breast and other cancers, its causality is not yet proven. The human-to-human transmission of MMTV causing breast cancer is even more hypothetical at this point. It is under research.
