Cell Genesys: The Promise of GVAX

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.
