CimaVax Lung Cancer Vaccine works by targeting a protein called epidermal growth factor (EGF) that allows the tumor to survive and grow. By blocking the growth factor, the tumor either starves or is unable to proliferate, which slows cancer growth and can significantly extend the life of a patient.
For people who already have lung cancer, this vaccine results in the body actually getting rid of the cancer cells. And for people who are currently healthy but are at a high risk of developing lung cancer, this treatment acts as a vaccine to prevent relapse.
