Creating hope from loss

Inspired by his wife's memory, Jeffrey Gelfand, MD, and his MGH colleagues set out to create a vaccine to attack tumors in patients already diagnosed with cancer.

Novel cancer vaccine holds promise against ovarian cancer, mesothelioma

A novel approach to cancer immunotherapy may provide a cost-effective weapon against some of the most deadly tumors, including ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. A protein engineered by MGH investigators to combine a molecule targeting a tumor antigen with an immune-function stimuating protein prolonged survival in animal models of both tumors.
