The study was led by Wei-Zen Wei of Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and tested the new vaccine on mice.

This new breast cancer vaccine was tested on mice who were injected with HER2-positive breast cancer tumors.

They found that the vaccine was effective in being able to eliminate tumors in mice who have this type of breast cancer.

The vaccine also showed that it was effective in preventing future breast cancer tumor growth as well

HER-2 positive breast cancer makes up 30% of all breast cancer cases on average.

The vaccine works by injecting genes into patients to help them fight the breast cancer tumors.

They have reported on the new vaccine in the journal Cancer Research.
