Can Cuba's innovative lung cancer vaccines give new hope to patients across the world?
In Cuba, as in the United States, lung cancer is a leading cause of death. But decades of economic and political isolation have starved the country of medical resources, leading Cuba's biomedical researchers to invent their own immunotherapies. Among them are lung cancer vaccines that can help jumpstart the body's immune response to cancer. Some U.S. patients are even defying their country's trade embargo to travel to Cuba for treatment.
