Experimental Vaccine May Help Reduce Recurrence Risk of HER2-Positive Disease
The immune system is the body's defense against infection and other health threats. Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to build defenses against a specific threat. The vaccines we know best build defenses against bacterial or viral infections. The idea of using a vaccine to try to prevent or treat breast cancer makes sense. Still, results from earlier studies on experimental vaccines targeting breast cancer havenít shown consistent benefits.
