VINSE researchers developed a promising treatment for breast cancer metastasis

June 12, 2020 – With a surprisingly simple approach in which cancer cells are first grown, ruptured and converted into nanoparticles, and then used as a vaccine, Vanderbilt University researchers say they have developed what appears to be a promising treatment for breast cancer metastasis. Metastasis is the last stage of cancer, responsible for about 90…
