Cancer vaccines are a type of therapy that uses a patient’s immune system (or components thereof) to fight the patient’s tumor. While early vaccine experiments often failed, recent studies have shown some spectacular successes. The goal of this IQP was to investigate the field of cancer vaccines, assessing its problems, identifying future trends, and making recommendations for moving the field forward. We found that although each type of therapy can induce side-effects they are far less severe than attempting to save the patient’s life from a relapsing fatal cancer.
