Fighting a global killer
Cancer is the second most likely cause of death today, and is estimated to be responsible for 9.6 million deaths annually (2018). Worldwide, about 1 in every 6 deaths is caused by cancer.
Existing cancer treatments are expensive, complex and usually damaging to the patient. They also have a variable degree of success – they are effective for some types of cancer and ineffective for others. Vaccines targeting cancer address all of these issues; extending lifespans, improving quality of life and making treatment available to a much higher proportion of the global population.
