Cell Genesys: The Promise of GVAX

Abstract:
In recent years, there have been some great improvements in the field of cancer therapy thanks to early diagnosis and new forms of therapies, such as monoclonal antibodies and nanoparticle-coated compounds. For over two decades, cancer vaccines have demonstrated impressive results in early pre-clinical trials, which gave rise to great expectations within the scientific community. Unfortunately, scientists couldn't replicate the early phase success into clinical trials, but there are finally some encouraging signs . With several promising candidates which are currently being evaluated in clinical trials, the cancer vaccine field might become the next big thing in cancer therapy.
