I was looking in Digg this morning and found this story. A new study appearing in The Prostate has found that certain measles virus vaccine strain derivatives, including a strain known as MV-CEA, may prove to be an effective treatment for patients with advanced prostate cancer. Here's the link. You will have to copy and paste.

I took a good dose of the stuff when I was a kid. I'd hate to see anyone trying to get the measles? LOLOL
Thank for the article...Yet another study that has early promise.

Like I have been saying, if this were perhaps true ("IF")....another Twilight Zone moment in PCa history. Who knows if you can mess up those cell receptors or mutate DNA structure of PCa cells, maybe something bizzare can happen that is good for this disease.
Remain skeptical always, but don't refuse to peek at stuff.
