Could a Vaccine Cure Mesothelioma?

The UV1 cancer vaccine stands as a promising advancement in immunotherapy, offering hope in the fight against cancer. Developed by Ultimovacs, this therapeutic vaccine aims to stimulate the body’s immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells bearing the telomerase enzyme.

By targeting this universal cancer marker, UV1 holds potential as a treatment for a wide range of cancers. Early clinical trials have shown encouraging results, demonstrating safety and efficacy in activating immune responses against cancer.

With ongoing research and development, UV1 represents a beacon of hope in the quest for more effective and personalized cancer treatments.

In October of 2023, Ultimovacs announced positive outcomes from the trials. 33 percent of the individuals participating in the trial saw a complete disappearance of their tumors and 57 percent saw at least a partial disappearance of tumors.

The second phase of the trial assessed the effect of adding the cancer vaccine to treatments for pleural mesothelioma patients.
