Scientists claim to have developed a vaccine for those with a family history of breast cancer. Developed at Newcastle University in UK, the drug aims to stop BRCA genes from multiplying. If the drug is given regularly, it may “vaccinate” women against the disease. Women who inherit the flawed BRCS gene are up to 85 percent more prone to develop breast cancer. The drug may be available before the end of this century.
