The Francis Crick Institute in London is working on a series of vaccines to prevent lung, bowel and pancreatic cancer which they are already being applied in living beings, in this case the tests with mice have begun.
The investigations focused on a gene known as KRAS that is linked to different cancers. The vaccine is capable of eliciting an immune response to KRAS mutations and therefore the results are promising.
“We know that if the KRAS gene fails, it allows cells to start multiplying and becoming cancerous. More recently, we have learned that, with the right help, the immune system is capable. to slow down this process“explained Rachel Ambler, a researcher at the institute.
“We wanted to see if we can use this knowledge to develop a cancer vaccine that could be used not only to treat it but to provide long-lasting protection against the disease with minimal side effects. “
The experimental vaccine is made from a protein fragment of cancer cells that have the mutated KRAS gene, which is linked to an antibody that is sent to the immune system to identify and destroy cancer cells.
