Immune prevention of cancer may be best way to beat it 

New methods of cancer prevention are promising.

Methods of preventing cancer are showing promise, though limited, causing researchers to call for greater investment in stopping cancer before it starts.

Researchers at the University of California San Diego write in a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that work to boost the immune, and other, systems to prevent ovarian, digestive, blood and gynecologic cancers should receive more focus as a method for preventing death from the diseases.

 The researchers suggest further investment in overall efforts such as the federal governments’ Cancer Moonshot pursued by Vice President Joe Biden, which have helped to draw more attention to projects developing methods for avoiding cancer.

“Prevention research has made strides, but progress has been anecdotal and isolated,” Dr. Elizabeth Jaffee, co-chair of the Cancer Moonshot Blue Ribbon Panel and deputy director of the KImmel Center at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Medicine, said in a press release. “If the goal is eradication of cancer, we need a radically new focus, investment and approach to premalignant diseases and cancer prevention, one that is supported and sustained by broad, deep efforts like the Cancer Moonshot and Human Vaccines Project.”
