DAILY MAIL UK: ‘Universal’ cancer jab: Vaccine that stops all tumors intheir tracks could be here in two years By Fiona Macrae Last updated at 1:14 AM on 15th April 2011 A 'universal' vaccine that could revolutionise the treatment of cancer could be available in just two years. The TeloVac jab is part of a new generation of drugs that use the body’s own defences to fight the disease, stopping tumours in their tracks. TeloVac has already been given to hundreds of Britons with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of the disease. But it is hoped it will be effective against many other tumours, including those of the skin, lung and liver. Breast and prostate cancers may also be within its grasp. Together, the six forms of the disease claim more 70,000 lives a year in the UK. In the case of pancreatic cancer, which killed actor Patrick Swayze, survival rates have barely improved in the past 40 years, and patients typically die within six months of diagnosis. Just 3 per cent survive five years, and it is the fifth biggest cancer killer in the UK. Although vaccines usually prevent disease, the TeloVac jab is designed as a treatment.
