Brain cancer vaccine promising in test results

An experimental brain cancer vaccine has been found to nearly double the life expectancy of some patients with the most aggressive form of the disease.

This study comes from research at Duke university medical center and M-D Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas. Karen Vaneman has one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer -- a glioblastoma, which usually claims its victims within about 15 months after diagnosis.
