A vaccine against cancer is not as far-fetched as it might sound, as a team of scientists from the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California has already developed a peptide-based vaccine that is effective in reducing tumor growth. The vaccine targets specific enzymes known as metalloproteinases (MMPs) that are necessary for any cancer to grow tumors, metastasize, and form blood vessels in tumors (angiogenesis).

When animals were vaccinated with peptides and then challenged with melanoma cancer cells, the scientists found they had an average reduction in tumor volume of about 76 percent compared to unvaccinated animals. Particularly notably, some of the vaccinated animals didn’t develop any cancer at all.

Based on this research, the Dr. Rath Research Institute believes that peptide vaccines have the potential to help prevent cancer, thereby saving millions of lives and opening the door to the eventual elimination of this disease.
