Shannon texted me at 6 pm this evening that 60 Minutes was having a segment about GBM. Scott Pelley reported on research at Duke that was using a modified polio vaccine to attack recurrent glioblastomas (GBMs). In some cases the vaccine completely eradicated the tumor. Others survived a few months longer than expected.
Here is a link to Pelley’s March 2015 report:
The first patient, a 20 year old nursing student, is cancer free and she is now a nurse 3 years later. The 2nd patient is also alive. Others have not done as well. Nancy Justice did not survive since this 2015 link.
I think that use of the vaccine has been approved by the FDA. Did anyone else see the program?
