Cancer vaccine seeing remarkable results fighting tumors

June 21, 2023

HOUSTON (KIAH) — New technology is being developed to create a vaccine that would help fight cancer. And so far, the trial results have been remarkable.

A team of scientists at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, used chemistry and nanotechnology to change how vaccines are designed and made. Their hope is that their vaccine will ultimately replace chemotherapy.

The idea is components can be loaded into the naval vaccine and interchanged in specific positions to optimize cell-to-cell communication. At the same time, the structure accommodates a more precise dose of an immune therapy increasing the vaccine’s potency.
