City church to host yard Injections designed to spur the body's immune system to attack tumors cured breast cancer in mice, a new study states. Researchers inoculated six mice with genetically modified dentritic cells, an important immune system component. A single injection directly into breast cancer tumors in the mice destroyed the tumor in five mice and reduced the sixth's tumor to barely discernible size. The researchers later injected the mice with more live breast cancer cells. None of the mice developed any new tumors. "This suggests that the treatment not only fights rumors but generates a long - lasting immune system memory, which should protect the host in the same way that anti - infection vaccines do," said Zoya R. Yurkovetsky, the study's lead researcher and a doctoral candidate in the department of molecular genetics and biochemistry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The study was presented at last weekend's "Era of Hope" forum in Orlando, Fla. The forum was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense's Breast Cancer Research Program. Just a trial Dr. Jay Brooks, chief of hematology and oncology at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, cautions it's too early to get overly hopeful about a cancer vaccine. "Research like this is very exciting and very encouraging to clinicians like myself," Brooks said. "The problem is that breast cancer in mice is not the same as breast cancer is in women. To translate this work in patients is a gigantic leap of faith at this time." Breast cancer in women is far more complex, usually developing over a long period of time and affected by a variety of factors, from genetics to environmental contributors. The mice, to contrast, had artificially induced breast cancer caused by a specific agent, Brooks said. "There's been many cases in the past where we found drugs that were very effective in mice, but in humans they didn't hold up."
