Incorporating a personalized mRNA vaccine, designed to match an individual’s tumor genetics, into standard immunotherapy substantially boosts survival rates and reduces the recurrence of high-risk skin cancers in patients who have had these malignancies removed.
Global trials that could revolutionize cancer treatment and save countless lives are being led by scientists from Edith Cowan University (ECU).
Clinical Professor Adnan Khattak from ECU’s Centre for Precision Health recently unveiled the newest findings from these trials at the 2023 American Society of Oncology (ASCO) congress in Chicago. The ASCO congress, attracting more than 45,000 participants, is the largest cancer treatment conference worldwide.
