Mayo Clinic trial: Massive blast of measles vaccine wipes out cancer

One of two subjects to receive a massive dose of measles vaccine for metastatic cancer went into complete remission.

Stacy Erholtz was out of conventional treatment options for blood cancer last June when she underwent an experimental trial at the Mayo Clinic that injected her with enough measles vaccine to inoculate 10 million people.

The 50-year-old Pequot Lakes mother is now part of medical history.

The cancer, which had spread widely through her body, went into complete remission and was undetectable in Erholtz’s body after just one dose of the measles vaccine, which has an uncanny affinity for certain kinds of tumors.

Erholtz was one of just two subjects in the experiment and the only one to achieve complete remission.

“We’ve known for a long time that we can give a virus intravenously and destroy metastatic cancer in mice. Nobody’s shown that you can do that in people before.”

Until now. [emphasis mine]

Stacy Erholtz of Pequot Lakes, Minn., was all but dead from blood cancer before age 50

until the Mayo Clinic trial. Now her cancer is in remission.

This is amazing! Who knows from where the next treatment protocol will arise? That dosage sounds like a pretty risky thing to do, but as it turned out, may have been the way to go. I'm sharing.
