    Researchers in Cork say they have created a vaccine which could in the future be used to effectively protect against prostate cancer.

    The Cork Cancer Research Centre at University College Cork says it has identified DNA vaccines that are able to target and destroy cancer cells.

    Could be interesting given the association with XMRV and certain prostate cancers.

    Amazing stuff. Thanks for posting this.

    FWIW, there is a little loudspeaker icon in the upper left corner of the article. Click it and you can hear an interview with one of the researchers.

    Inositol hexaphosphate(IP6)a natural product found in rice bran, has been found to kill prostate cancer cells.

    Could it also I wonder, kill the dreaded XMRV ?

    It is perhaps an inappropriate digression from the main theme of this thread but I remember having read in some official general survey of cancer incidence in the USA that there was an inexplicable increase of prostate cancer in the 1990s. I wonder if there might be a relation to a putative XMRV onset of spread in the 1980s and the first cases of CFS documented by Fukuda et al.
