Cancer is a result of multiplication of these cells and it’s stopped byusing EGF vaccine which stops the growth of tumor.

Atleast two clinical tests in Cuba have shown that CimaVax EGF, improves the survival rate of lung cancer patients usually in the terminal stage. Hypothetically, the survival rate of lung cancer patients can be increased if the vaccine is administered in the earlier stages of the disease’s advancement. Note that the vaccine is not preventive as in other diseases, only that it makes the lung cancer disease more manageable by reducing cases of early lung cancer deaths.

Other lung cancer treatment procedures like chemotherapy and radiation are known to kill patients. The side effects of CimaVax are mild. It is also less costly since it goes for $1 to produce it. This is much affordable …
