My 35 year old daughter has an astrocytoma grade 2 which has caused grand mal seizures. She was diagnosed in April 2009. She is a singer in Sweden and one of the reasons that her tumor has remained at grade 2, based on research, is that music especially violin (which she also plays) , keeps the tumor from growing. Eventually, these tumors grow and progress to grade 3 and finally 4 which change the status to malignant. Do you believe that this vaccine would be effective with an astrocytoma?
