Cancer Vaccines

Cancer vaccines, also known as therapeutic vaccines, are a type of immunotherapy. The vaccines mostly work to boost the body's natural defences to fight against cancer. Doctors give treatment vaccines to people already diagnosed with cancer. The vaccines may:

  •  Prevent the cancer from coming back
  •  Destroy any cancer cells still in the body after other treatment
  •  Stop a tumour from growing or spreading

There are 2 types of cancer prevention vaccines approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

HPV vaccine: The vaccine protects against the human papillomavirus (HPV). If the virus is long-lasting, it can cause some types of cancer. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved HPV vaccines to prevent:

·         Cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancer

·         Anal cancer

·         Genital warts

 Hepatitis B vaccine: The vaccine prevents hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Long-lasting infection with HBV can cause liver cancer.
