Re: NeuVax reduces recurrence by 78.4% over 5 years

I did not participate in this trial as a patient. I have never received the Neuvax vaccine.

Since the vaccine is not currently approved for the general population Galena Biopharma is not making money on the vaccine. The company is following the clinical trial system to get FDA approval, Phase I - Phase III. I do agree it is a terrible system that patients must die to get a treatment approved. But this company did not create the clinical trial system and the vaccine won't be approved if they don't follow the FDA regulations.

Many women have benefited from participating. I am so happy for them.

I am and will continue to celebrate the progress of a vaccine that reduces the recurrence rate of Her2 positive breast cancer.

If you don't qualify for this clinical trial look for another. I have participated in 6 to advance cancer treatment.
