The Keynote In Short

How Can We Cure Cancer?

In this keynote Vincenzo Cerrullo explains how cancer can be cured just like an ordinary cold by the help of our own body. Cerrullo has developed a treatment called PeptiCrad. With the use of PeptiCrad it is possible to fool our own immune system into recognizing tumors as normal viruses. This enables our bodies to get rid of the tumor as if it were an ordinary, virus-based cold.
