Omg seriously


This headline is unfortunately misleading. Cancer is a pretty wide group of diseases, and this is a vaccine against (the common cause of) one or some of them (colorectal). Somewhat similar to the HPV vaccine. Edit: That said.. it’s awesome 🙂


Please let it work and not be overpriced.


Hurry up already. Judging by family history, I’m getting it in about 10 years time.


Wow. My family spent the better part of two decades shuttling my dad back and forth to NYC for specialized chemo, multiple liver resections, lung surgeries, and more due to his colon cancer. This would be utterly revolutionary.
