Abstract

Cancer vaccines are a promising tool in the hands of the clinical oncologist. We have summarized the most recent findings and achievements in this exciting field. Tumor-associated antigens, as a basis for the new cancer vaccines, are reviewed. We emphasize novel approaches for the design of safe and more effective vaccines for cancer. We also discuss the possible clinical applications and the future prospects for vaccine development.
