Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

People affected by the lethal glioblastoma cancer only live for 12–18 months after diagnosis.

A global trial that began in 2007 has confirmed that a vaccine for the treatment of the most lethal brain cancer can give patients years of extended life.

Glioblastoma is not only the most common form of brain cancer but is also one of the deadliest. People affected by the disease only live just 12–18 months after the diagnosis, or even less.

Now, thanks to the vaccine DCVax, some 2,500 people who are diagnosed with deadly cancer in the UK could be benefitted.
