Cuba approves, makes available lung cancer vaccine to extend lives

Cuban scientists said on Tuesday the first vaccine to extend lives of lung cancer patients has been approved by Cuban authorities for use and is available in the island's hospitals. The drug, CimaVax EGF, has been shown to increase survival rates on average four to five months and much longer in some patients, they said in a news conference at Cuba's Center of Molecular Immunology. In contrast to chemotherapy, the traditional treatment for lung cancer, they said CimaVax EGF has few side effects because it is a modified protein that attacks only cancer cells. ...

I think that heading should be "Cuba Approves, Makes Available Lung Cancer TREATMENT", Alice.

You do look at your Cuba pieces before posting them, right?
