Wow this is so amazing! Imagine how many lives this will save if this vaccine ends up working and being approved by the FDA!
Lee Mercker from Jacksonville, was diagnosed with very early-stage form of breast cancer in March.
Instead of deciding to begin treatment, Mercker agreed to join a study trial of a vaccine at the Mayo Clinic.
The vaccine is said to stimulate the patient’s own immune system over a 12-week period, so that cells can attack the cancer.
“It’s supposed to be just off the shelf, kind of similar to when you get the flu shot or pneumonia shot,” said Dr. Saranya Chumsri.
Lee Mercker was diagnosed with DCIS stage zero cancer.
