Vaccine Treatment for Prostate Cancer Sipuleucel-T (Provenge) is a cancer vaccine. Unlike traditional vaccines, which boost the body’s immune system to help prevent infections, this vaccine boosts the immune system to help it attack prostate cancer cells....This vaccine is made specifically for each man. To make it, white blood cells (cells of the immune system) are removed from your blood over a few hours while you are hooked up to a special machine. The cells are then sent to a lab, where they are exposed to a protein from prostate cancer cells called prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP). The cells are then sent back to the doctor’s office or hospital, where they are given back to you by infusion into a vein (IV). This process is repeated 2 more times, 2 weeks apart, so that you get 3 doses of cells. The cells help your other immune system cells attack the prostate cancer. Vaccine Treatment for Prostate Cancer *************** This process is right now, as we sit, approved for use in men by the FDA. The IDENTICAL embryological tissue type corollary in women (uterine cells), the most common type of killer for women's gynecological cancers, remains without the same exact process known to work. Taking the protein signatures from cancer cells is not limited to prostate cancer. It can be done with any cancer. What works even better is if they get a biopsied tumor sample and use it's varied genetic signatures to produce an even more comprehensive immune response to that particular type of cell protein. One is approved and helping lives. The other is simply not available. Not even for compassionate uses. More here: BigCancer Industry Throws Women Under The Bus Simply put, Trump's FDA has decided men can live and women can die. Not long ago (2016, a DEMOCRAT administration compassionate fast-track), the FDA ramrodded through, as a favor to BigPharma, the use of Keytruda for cancers that hadn't even passed clinical testing for it's use. The reason why it was shoved through (thankfully) is because of other cancer it did have an effect on and the surmised prediction that how it worked with that cancer (solid tumor by general attack from the body's immune system hyped up), it would work with others. So given that prostate and uterine cells are basically the same cell type, why isn't there a vaccine for women while one for men is FDA approved? Using the same logic as the Keytruda push-through, we should see the same policy. But we don't. And as I said before I suspect that because uterine cancer is the most common type, in order for Trump's BigCancer to continue to get your sympathy donations and maintain it's cruel and archaic methods of treatment (chemo/radiation) and all the college degrees reliant upon those industries, they hand-selected a very large group of cancer patients (the largest, women uterine) to throw under the bus. (to knowingly deny treatment to. Put simply, to slaughter for money). Mr. Trump? Your Administration's thoughts? Is it time for a Keytruda-type fast track for a surmised (but not proven) fast-track for a women's uterine cancer vaccine? Same cell type. Same basic proven process. Not even in "compassionate use"? Really? If you're a woman, would you vote for an administration that is complicit in the slaughter of women for money? I think I'm going to change my affiliation, particularly in Congressional races unless this injustice is righted. It's absolutely disgusting. Death for money. Do NOT give any more money to "cancer research" because I guarantee you the research is heavily rigged to preserve a cash cow at the suffering of women.
