Trials for a new cancer vaccine are underway.
A cancer ‘vaccine’ which kills tumours then stops them coming back is set to be tested on humans within months, The Mail on Sunday has learned.
The new approach involves injecting two chemotherapy drugs into tumours, kick-starting the immune system to fight back.
Scientists have had stunning results in mice, clearing cancer in up to 80 per cent of cases, then keeping them tumour-free.
Researchers hope that trials in people with common cancers, including bowel, breast and skin diseases, will yield similar results.
One said the jab triggered an ‘extremely powerful immune response’, while another said there was ‘every reason’ to think the method would work in humans too.
