DoriVac: Boosting Antigen-specific Immune Responses with DNA Origami-Based Vaccines
Personalized cancer and infectious disease vaccine platform harnessing DNA nanotechnology to control the co-delivery and co-presentation of tumor antigen and adjuvant ligands to immune cells with nanoscale precision. This approach has potential to trigger enhanced immune responses against tumors and infectious pathogens.
Implantable Cancer Vaccine
The implantable cancer vaccine is an aspirin-sized disc that is implanted under the skin and serves as an artificial lymph node, recruiting and training a patient's own immune cells to find and kill their cancer cells. It was validated in a Phase I clinical trial at the Wyss Institute, and is currently being developed by Novartis to treat melanoma.
Video/AnimationHow can we train the immune system to fight cancer?The implantable cancer vaccine is a biomaterial that recruits and reprograms a patient’s own immune cells on-site to kill cancer cells. This revolutionary immuno-material technology was tested in a Phase I clinical trial with promising results and is currently licensed by Novartis as an immunotherapy to treat specific tumor types.
