Background information on Cancer Vaccine [When available]

Cancer vaccines are intended either to treat existing cancers (therapeutic vaccines) or to prevent the development of cancer (prophylactic vaccines).

Therapeutic vaccines, which are administered to cancer patients, are designed to treat cancer by stimulating the immune system to recognize and attack human cancer cells without harming normal cells. Prophylactic vaccines are given to healthy individuals to stimulate the immune system to attack cancer-causing viruses and prevent viral infection.

At this time, two vaccines have been licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to prevent virus infections that can lead to cancer: the hepatitis B vaccine, which prevents infection with the hepatitis B virus, an infectious agent associated with liver cancer; and GardasilTM, which prevents infection with the two types of human papillomavirus that together cause 70 percent of cervical cancer cases worldwide.

Scientists are currently evaluating several different vaccines in large human trials to determine which approaches are most effective for particular kinds of cancers.
