To ensure safety, Wei says the current test vaccine uses HER2 genes that are altered so that they are not oncogenic. Contain contain produced no 'intracellular domain ' - the part of the receptor just below just below the cell surface, and transmits the signals to the nucleus growth. The first vaccine was also safe, she says, but contained a little more of the native HER2 receptor structure. 'With this vaccine, I am quite sure that the receptor is functionally 'm dead,'she said. 'The greatest power of vaccination against early development of cancer, and that is our ultimate goal with this treatment,'Wei said.

HER2 receptors promote normal cell growth, and is found in small amounts in normal breast cells. But HER2-positive breast cancer cells contain many more receptors than normal, promoting a particularly aggressive type of tumor that 20 to 30 % of all patients are affected with breast cancer. Therapies such as trastuzumab and lapatinib, designed to, latch on to these receptors and destroy them.
