Vaccine hopes for blood cancersTopics: Medicine
A vaccine to help patients fend off blood cancers could be a reality in the near future.
It could even be given to healthy people who donate bone marrow to treat patients with multiple myeloma.
Scientists have been testing candidate jabs in humans and say early results are promising.
These use specially-treated material from the patient's cancer to try to encourage the body's own immune system to pick out and attack myeloma cells.
