‘Universal cancer vaccine' Scientist claims it’s a breakthrough

 Researchers have found a way to persuade the body's immune system to attack tumours – and it is largely free from side effects
Scientists have taken a “very positive step” towards creating a universal vaccine against cancer that makes the body’s immune system attack tumours as if they were a virus, experts have said.
Writing in Nature, an international team of researchers described how they had taken pieces of cancer’s genetic RNA code, put them into tiny nanoparticles of fat and then injected the mixture into the bloodstreams of three patients in the advanced stages of the disease.
