A man with bowel cancer has become the first person in England to be treated with a personalized jab for the disease on the NHS.

Health leaders hailed the treatment as “a landmark moment” for patients and the NHS.

Officials said thousands more people are expected to be recruited to take part in vaccine trials for various forms of cancer in the coming years as part of a new scheme.

The name of the first patient to receive the vaccine for bowel cancer is Elliot Pfebve, 55, who was diagnosed with the disease after a routine health check with his GP.

After having a 30cm tumor removed from his large intestine, he was referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for chemotherapy and to take part in the clinical trial.

The father-of-four, who is a higher education lecturer, said: “Taking part in this trial tallies with my profession as a lecturer and as a community-centered person.
