Breast Cancer Vaccine Approval Sought

video preview image

EUGENE, Ore. — Researchers are now working to develop a vaccine to prevent breast cancer.

The vaccine has been in development for more than a decade. Researchers are now asking for permission from the FDA to test it on women. That could take at least two years.

If the vaccine works in trials, it could be on the market 10 years from now.

Researcher Dr. Vincent Tuohy from the Cleveland Clinic joined us on KEZI 9 News Midday to talk about the project.

    This important research needs to be fast tracked through the FDA approval process. Too many women die of this disease every year to waste time.

    I’m a recent survivor of inflammatory breast cancer and it’s awful treatments. Dr. Tuohy’s vaccine offers hope to millions.
