A therapeutic vaccine, not a preventive one

This new vaccine does not aim to prevent cancers, but to treat those detected, and to prevent relapses, as explained Jean-Pierre Delord, doctor at the Oncopole from Toulouse which supervises this test phase: “in fact the whole process, which is nevertheless a scientific and technological exploit, is to arrive in time for normal care to do all the genetic analyzes and to produce in a very short time [quelques mois] a vaccine which is individual, and therefore specific to each patient according to his repertoire of mutation“.

This therapeutic vaccine, which has yet to pass several phases of testing to prove its effectiveness, should increase the chances of recovery for cancer patients and prevent relapses. We will have to wait several more years, the time it is evaluated and then possibly validated, before seeing it arrive on the market.
