Grant funds breast-cancer vaccine study

UC Davis Cancer Center researchers are launching a study of a new, experimental vaccine to determine if it can arrest or prevent breast cancer when used in conjunction with standard hormonal therapies. Funded with a $3 million grant from Merck KGaA, the study is assessing the effectiveness of an experimental vaccine that targets MUC1, a cancer cell surface protein that is uniquely overexpressed in many cancers, including more than 90 percent of all breast cancers. Results from the UC Davis study, led by Michael DeGregorio, professor of hematology and oncology, will help direct the design of human clinical trials slated to begin worldwide this year.
