Vaccination elicits long-lasting protective immunity against breast cancer

By using the natural rejection reaction that happens when you transplant tissue that is alien to the body scientists at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg Sweden has developed a potential vaccine against cancer.

Here is a quote from the abstract_cancervaccin.pdf:
Results: Four out of 5 (80%) non-vaccinated rats and 2 out of 5 (40%) rats given prophylactic vaccinations with tumor-loaded allogneic vaccine cells developed subcutaneous tumors within 3 weeks. In rats given prophylactic vaccination with NAS-treated and tumor-loaded vaccine cells only one out of 5 (20%) rats developed a tumor. This immunity was long-lasting since challenge of tumor-rejecting rats with new tumor-cells 6 weeks later failed to induce any tumor growth. In the therapeutic setting all rats developed tumors but tumor growth was significantly reduced (p< 0,05) in rats given NAS-treated and tumor-loaded vaccine cells compared to controls.

Untreated and treated tumors

Conclusion: Our results indicate that NAS-treated allogeneic monocyte-derived cells may act as antigen carrier as well as a potent adjuvant in cancer vaccination.

The vaccine can be mass produced and frozen.

So, you wanna live forever?

There are several advances in the area of eternal life, and Swedish television just did a show on the subject. Here is what they had to say, in short:

Calorie Restriction - This will increase your lifespan with about 30%.

Not good enough says Aubrey de Gray. We should be able to live for 1000 years, the trick is to know what kind of damage is inflicted on your body by aging and find ways to repair it. He has singled out 7 kinds of damage. Oh, and there's 20 000 dollars for the one proving him wrong.

Swedish scientist Thomas Nystrom and his team has discovered a gene called Sir 2. When a "mother" cell reproduces it does not pass on it's flaws to it's "child". However if you remove Sir 2 it will pass on the flaws as well. This is a clue that might reduce age related damage on the body.

Cancer is very tough and can keep itself young forever because of the telomeres. Telomeres are the physical ends of linear eukaryotic chromosomes. Each time the chromosome splits in two, the telomeres are reduced. After 23 splits the telomeres are completely gone, and the cell dies. Cancer has found a way to renew the telomers and thus live forever. This ability has been transferred to human cells. Stemcells anyone?
