Promising Discovery In Breast Cancer Research

A new development in cancer research has been discovered right here in Atlantic Canada. That word coming from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

It reports researcher Dr. Christopher Richardson of Dalhousie Medical School in Halifax has conducted a study that indicates cancer cells are vulnerable to the measles virus.

This means that, ultimately, the measles virus could be used to fight cancer tumours. It's hoped, in the long-term, a vaccine could potentially be developed which could be used in the treatment of cancer patients.
