this is what i have been writing on these forums for last 9 months... we need both therapeutic vaccines and paired with other drugs that amplify the immune response.

we need these drugs that amplify the immune response NOW

they give them to horses, prize 6 million dollar race horses they give drugs that amplify the immune response along with other meds to cure cancer in race horses... 

i am upset because i have read today of all the people in state that are struggling to get even normal meds.

we need giant activism to double funding drugs that amplify the immune response.

this is what that guy larry kramer should be writing about, he doesnt read anything in science and has no idea what is close to being ready then he writes mad attacks on why st8ts hate gays in the paper

what a self indulgent bunch of crap, he has the power of getting pages of NY TImes paper space and he wastes it on ridiculous crying about things

how about fact that race horses get better more advanced medical care now than AIDS patients because, the Pharmas got thier market of haart and such...

he predicts that the real heyday of cancer vaccines will come when they are paired with other drugs that amplify the immune response.


Medicine's arsenal against cancer could soon include a new class of treatments -- therapeutic vaccines -- now that the first of these products has cleared a major regulatory hurdle.

A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel on Thursday supported approval of Dendreon Corp.'s Provenge, the first cancer vaccine to get so far in the regulatory process. If the agency follows the panel's advice and approves Provenge for metastatic prostate cancer, Dendreon will become a trailblazer with the first product brought to market in the United States in this new drug category.

That could ease the path for other cancer vaccines, opening a whole line of commercial products for biotechnology companies.

"I think it's a positive event for the field as a whole,'' said Dendreon chief executive Mitchell Gold.

Early market reaction suggests that the panel's positive vote on Provenge could be a shot in the arm for the entire class of cancer vaccine developers, boosting the credibility of a field that has seen many failures. Trading in Seattle's Dendreon was halted Thursday pending the advisory panel's recommendation. But shares in Cell Genesys of South San Francisco, whose vaccine GVAX is also being tested in prostate cancer, leapt 8.7 percent after the vote was reported.
