Breast Cancer Vaccine

About one in five new breast cancers will be diagnosed as Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS), which is considered the earliest form of breast cancer.

In this UPMC Physician Journal feature, learn about a first of its kind clinical trial to test a breast cancer prevention vaccine; and, see the first participant in the trial as she receives her vaccine.

This story features interviews with immunologist Dr. Olivera Finn, whose decades of research led to the vaccine’s development; UPMC Magee breast surgical oncologist Dr. Emilia Diego; and medical oncologist Dr. Julia Foldi.
