Customized cancer vaccines based on individual patients' DNA could soon be a reality, might require diagnostic support from anatomic pathology labs

from Dark Daily

ost anatomic pathologists are aware of the rapid advances in the field of cancer immunotherapy — sometimes also called immune-oncology. This is an area of healthcare where precision medicine and personal genetics become crucial elements in developing more effective drug regimens. Scientists are combining those two areas of research to develop vaccines designed for specific individuals based on the genetic characteristics of their DNA. This is why there are great hopes that cancer immunotherapy can be used to artificially stimulate the immune system to treat cancer and improve the system’s natural ability to fight cancer. more
