The immune-boosting leukemia jab will be tried out on volunteers who have either chronic or acute myeloid leukemia - two forms of bone marrow and blood cancer.

If successful, the DNA vaccine, developed at Southampton University, could be available in five years, reports the Daily Express.

"We're very excited. This vaccine has real promise," the Leukemia and Lymphoma Research charity said.

This is a great news! I do hope that this blood cancer vaccine will work. As we all know, cancer is a major health problem in the whole world and preventing it, finding new drugs for treatment, etc. is one of the major goals of researchers all over the world.
