In brief: New approaches

The present chemotherapeutic approach and those monoclonals targeting growth factors have not made a major impact on survival.
The specific immunogenic protein characterizing colorectal cancer has been isolated, defined and can be used as a vaccine. The effect is production of an IgG1 that targets the tumor. IgG1 given IV works in 6-8hrs. if needed for advanced cases, vaccine for prevention P.O
