In Depth on Cancer Vaccines

(Found via Transhumanity). BusinessWeek goes in depth on the development of cancer vaccines, treatments that trick the immune system into destroying cancer cells. A surprisingly large percentage of all new research and a number of industry heavyweights are focused on vaccines at the moment, so results may just be a matter of time. A lot of money is being poured into this research, as well as into understanding the biochemical cellular mechanics that will make it all possible. This fundamental understanding should bring long term gains in other fields of biomedicine. All in all, a very interesting and informative article.
