Last week I heard on my local news and then also Googled the information that the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL has a trial for a triple negative breast cancer vaccine.  Does anybody know anything about this trial?
Diagnosed 6/21/18 at 50 years old with stage 1, triple negative idc, brca 2 positive, Bilateral mastectomy, no nodes involved, no further treatment (chemo or radiation) recommended

The vaccine is still in the trial stages. The vaccine is meant to reduce the risk of recurrence. I am going to talk to my oncologist about and see what she knows.

Multi-epitope Folate Receptor Alpha Peptide Vaccine, Sargramostim, and Cyclophosphamide in Treating Patients With Triple Negative Breast Cancer

This randomized phase II trial studies how well multi-epitope folate receptor alpha peptide vaccine, sargramostim, and cyclophosphamide work in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer. Vaccines made from a person's white blood cells mixed with tumor proteins may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving multi-epitope folate receptor alpha peptide vaccine, sargramostim, and cyclophosphamide may work better in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer.
