Skin cancer cure claims have been made by a group of researchers.
A vaccine, which attacks tumour cells, leaving healthy cells undamaged and carries agents that boost the body's response to skin cancer, is being tested in the UK. And up till now, it has apparently helped some patients fully recover from melanoma, even in its advanced stages, reports The Telegraph.
AdvertisementDr Howard Kaufman, of Chicago's Rush University Medical Centre, said: "Our study shows we may have a cure for some advanced melanoma patients and a drug which has real benefits for others.
"This will save thousands of lives a year."
