Healthy Living: Metastatic Cancer Vaccine

Researchers at UC San Diego Health and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology are working on a cancer vaccine that’s specific for each patient.

It’s specifically created according to a patient’s own cancer mutations and immune system.

It’s a clinical trial that is only for people with metastatic cancer. 

Courtney Hunter explains more in Healthy Living.

Tamara’s parents donated a million dollars to fund this trial, hoping to help her.

They’ve already lost another daughter to cancer.

The trial will enroll ten patients and only has three now.

Doctors are looking for patients with any kind of slow-growing metastatic cancer.
