I'm wondering what happened to the research that was going on some time ago with mice that had cancer immunity...

It was exciting to me - I read a couple of news briefs in various magazines and then heard no more - apparently mice with tumors were injected with *something* taken from cancer-immune mice, and their tumors went away.

Sounds like a fairy tale, doesn't it? This was from Science magazine, I think, or Science News, reputable sources.

Anyone heard more?

What I really meant to do was edit my post, because a found a link to at least one article I read: Discover Magazine, check it out.

There was also a vaccine research study from the University of Kentucky.

Hmmm. Different approach, different study, but also interesting. I'll have to check the web for followups. Thanks.
