Cancer is one of the leading killers if not the leading killer of dogs. I've personally lost 3 dogs to cancer and to be totally frank, it sucks! Two were only 5 and one was 7 years old, all in the prime of their lives.
Well I read an interview about a very promising new treatment for cancer in pets and potentially for cancer in humans that must be shared.
Exciting News About a Vaccine to Treat Cancer in Pets
By Dr. Becker
Today I’m interviewing Dr. Patricia Lawman, who created a wonderful product I want to discuss with everyone here at Mercola Healthy Pets.
Dr. Lawman is the CEO of Morphogenesis, Inc., which is a cell and gene therapy company located in Tampa, Florida. The company was founded by a brilliant group of scientists from around the world who have a vision of what cell and gene therapy can do for the face of medicine.
“We all knew and felt very strongly that it would be the future of medicine,” says Dr. Lawman. “It’s exciting to see it actually happening now.”
ImmuneFx Is a Protein-Tagged Cancer Vaccine
Morphogenesis, Inc. is a research and development company that has grown into a clinical stage company about to launch its first human trial. Dr. Lawman and her team have developed a protein-tagged cancer vaccine for companion animals as well as humans called ImmuneFx.
Their approach to cancer is quite different from the traditional standard of care treatments, which include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. “We believe the body’s innate intelligence is what will win the day,” says Dr. Lawman.
Cancer is an ever-changing, ever-evolving disease, which makes it very difficult to treat with traditional therapies. The Morphogenesis scientists have taken the difficulties of treating cancer and turned them into an advantage.
This new approach to cancer sounds very promising to me. I've always felt that the body has the tools to fight cancer but we just needed to figure out how to trigger it. It appears somebody may have done it!
