introduction to cancer vaccines

Cancer vaccines could be a promising approach to cancer treatment that involves identifying specific neoantigens (modified surface proteins) on cancer cells and creating a personalized vaccine to stimulate the immune system to recognize and attack them. The process involves:

1. Identifying neoantigens on cancer cells 2. Isolating and characterizing cancer cells' surface proteins using DNA sequencing and mass spectrometry 3. Finding a surface protein that the immune system can recognize well without cross-reactivity to normal human proteins 4. Producing a vaccine containing the neoantigen or its RNA sequence
