June 16, 2022

Developing cancer vaccines have been an essential partTrusted Source of cancer research for almost three decades.

Many formsTrusted Source of cancer vaccines are under research, including those that target proteins expressed across multiple cancer types, and those that are personalizedTrusted Source according to individual tumor mutations.

While existing vaccines can induce an immune response in blood, tumors often dodge this response via an immune escape mechanism.

Targeting this mechanism may help researchers improve cancer vaccine efficacy.

In a recent study, researchers developed a new cancer vaccine that targets this immune escape mechanism and increases immune antibody levels.
