Researchers from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) are working on developing a new type of vaccine against cancers, which is meant to help the immune system recognize specific tumor associated carbohydrate antigens (TACA). The vaccine could potentially work on several types of cancer, as reported by industry media Dagens Pharma.

”We are not the first to attempt to develop a cancer vaccine, and we are also not the first to research a cancer vaccine against precisely these targets on cancer cells. But we have changed the way we make the vaccine, so it hopefully forms the foundation for a better immune system response than previous attempts at creating similar vaccines,” says Professor at DTU Chemistry Mads Hartvig Clausen, who has helped develop the vaccine.
