Glenn’s Treatment: Using Dendretic Cells to Create Cancer Vaccines

Larry Lightner (Glenn’s dad) shared this information in an email from Belgium:

“The from Stanford University explains the same procedure and theory that Dr. Van Gool has been doing for 10 years as a standard treatment.  He is the only one doing it with children.  A few Phase 1 studies have been done in the U.S. on adults but is still not a standard treatment here with the exception of Prostate cancer and a few others.  At UCLA medical center someone is doing something similar, however, it is only for advanced brain cancer and adults only. 
 
“It’s very interesting if you have time to watch it,  You may be able to use … it to help better understand what Glenn is doing in Belgium.”
