New Vaccine is Giving Pancreatic Cancer Patients Hope
An experimental vaccine is helping patients with pancreatic cancer live longer.
The drug uses the body's own immune system to destroy cancer cells.
Ohio researchers gave the vaccine to 70 patients and most were disease free after one year.
Larger studies are now being planned.
Pancreatic cancer is difficult to treat.
About 95 percent of patients do not survive.
