New clinical trial for breast cancer vaccine

Based on the impressive success of his previous clinical trial, Dr. Czerniecki and his staff at the University of Pennsylvania are excited to announce the 2nd clinical trial for a breast cancer vaccine. and
This study involves using your own cells to develop a vaccine that will attack cancer and prevent it from growing. Upon entering the study, your blood will be drawn in a way that allows us to collect only your white blood cells. These cells will be used to create a vaccine, which you will receive weekly over a six-week period. After you receive the vaccine, you will undergo the standard surgical procedure to remove any remaining DCIS in the breast.

The trial has opened, and we are actively looking for eligible participants.

For information please contact:
Jeanne Schueller
Research Project Manager
Department of Surgery
(desk) 215-349-8399
(cell) 215-882-4676
(fax) 215-662-4322

Jeanne Schueller can also put you in touch with lay volunteers who have knowledge of the vaccines.
Please tell all your contacts about this, so that anyone diagnosed with breast cancer can find out if they are eligible for this trial prior to surgery!!!
