Novel Strategies To Improve Success In Cancer Vaccine Clinical Trials, 19 – 20 September 2012, London, UK
There have so far only been three cancer vaccines approved by the FDA, and many others are now nearing the end of their clinical trials. Two of these were vaccines for HPV, which is responsible for 70% of cervical cancer. The most recent, and most exciting is the approval of Provenge last year, which is a vaccine for Prostate Cancer by Dendreon.
With a successful pathway through the commercialization and regulatory process now mapped out, companies are really starting to increase their work in this field to ensure success in clinical trials.
