NATIONAL (AP) - Researchers say they've developed a vaccine that reduced HER2-positive tumors in mice without side effects.
HER2-positive breast cancer can be hard to treat because many patients develop a resistance to the traditional therapies used to treat it.
Scientists say the vaccine could be used to treat women with this aggressive form of cancer, help prevent a recurrence and could even be given to healthy women to prevent the development of these tumors.
More research is planned.
