Today’s podcast is about longevity. Specifically, international pharmacopoeia and the American hunt for a viable lung cancer vaccine. Due to our trade embargo with Cuba, for decades our relationship with the country has been mutually exclusive. However, during that time they’ve developed a working vaccine that has been proven to both save and prolong the lives of those suffering from the disease.
With regulations recently loosened, we’re closer than ever before to getting our hands on this extraordinary medicine. But when will it be possible, and why is the process still laden with political obstacles?
We’ll talk with Dr. Kelvin Lee, an immunologist at Roswell Park. He’ll talk with us about developing lung cancer vaccines in both Cuba and the US. .
We’ll also chat with Thomas Rothstein, a biologist at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. He’s worked for six years alongside the Center for Molecular Immunology in Cuba to help establish a working lung cancer vaccine called Racotumomab.
