Cancer involves abnormal and uncontrolled cell growth which may spread to other parts of the body as well. According to GLOBOCAN, in 2015, approximately 15.2 Million incidences of cancer were registered all across the globe. Out of total, US accounted for approximately 1.7 Million incidences of this deadly disease. Cancer is also one of the leading causes of mortality. Traditional treatment options, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have several drawbacks such as hair loss, abnormal blood cell count and nausea. One of the major drawbacks of traditional cancer treatment therapies is the risk of remission in patient.
Owing to all these shortcomings, researchers are developing novel treatment options, such as cancer vaccines, for this disease. Cancer vaccines have always been considered as high potential method for preventing and treating cancer even though they have not been able to achieve their expected sales.
