Melanoma And Cancer Vaccines
Episode 6
Monday, 26 August, 2019

Dr. Patrick Ott speaks with Dr. Kerri Purdy about the Herculean effort currently underway to design a vaccine against melanoma. Developing a vaccine for melanoma is particularly challenging because it needs to be different for every person. Dr. Ott discusses: How personalized neopeptide antigen vaccines are made specifically for each individual patient. The challenge they face implementing this in the clinic because in metastatic melanoma it can take 2-3 months to sequence the specific tumour and make the vaccine Cancer patients who have more neoantigens have better T-cell responses Newer cancer vaccines using neoantigens to drive T-cells into the tumour and trigger an immune response are more effective than those designed two decades ago We now want to use the vaccines in a metastatic setting with improved delivery of the vaccine and use of adjuvants We can use molecular tools to show that vaccines can drive T-cells into the tumour. Dr. Ott is Clinical Director of the Melanoma Center and the Center for Immuno-Oncology at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. He is a physician and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
