Vaccination might be the future to protect oneself against cancers
Induced pluripotent stem cells may serve as cancer vaccine

Injection of pluripotent stem cells into experimental mice prevented or slowed down tumor development, a new study shows. These cells can be made from your own blood or skin cells by reprogramming them back to a juvenile state that bears much resemblance with cancer cells. The immune system will recognise these cells and be on the alert when a cancer might develop in the future. Pluripotent stem cells might thus make it possible to vaccinate somebody with his or her own cells against cancers.
