    A first-of-its-kind vaccine to prevent breast cancer has shown overwhelmingly favorable results in animal models, according to a study by researchers at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute.
    The researchers found that a single vaccination with the antigen α-lactalbumin prevents breast cancer tumors from forming in mice, while also inhibiting the growth of already existing tumors. Human trials could begin within the next year. If successful, it would be the first vaccine to prevent breast cancer.

    It is Breast Cancer. Not Women't Cancer. Unfortunately, Men can also get Breast Cancer. There can be an even worse prognosis when Men develop Breast Cancer.
