Given where we are now, does a focus on prevention of breast cancer and stopping metastasis hold potential for ending breast cancer? What recent progress has been made in those areas? What are the new emerging ideas that hold potential for overcoming barriers to the goal? Listen to Dr. Lyerly from Duke University, whose research is directed toward developing antigen specific immunity in patients with cancer. He discusses where we are and why we are going in the direction we are going by taking a different view on breast cancer.

You will learn:

  • The key issues in developing a preventive vaccine for breast cancer.
  • The potential targets for developing a preventive vaccine for breast cancer.
  • Research on antigen-specific immunity in patients with cancer.
