Viruses are the principal source in almost 10% of all cases of cancer and are hence an attractive therapeutic target for cancer avoidance. Preceding accomplishment with vaccines used to treat and avoid infectious ailments produced by viruses have delivered a platform for classifying oncoviruses and exploiting the host immune system to efficiently target and abolish them. The main challenges presently facing defensive anticancer vaccines are clinical, social, and economic in nature. Disputes are now ongoing, and important judgments are still yet to be ended with respect to exactly how preventive anti-cancer vaccines can be provided to a general populace in a moral and economical manner. Over the earlier few years, only a few anti-cancer vaccines have been authorized and permitted for routine clinical practice, thus providing a breakthrough in the field. Nevertheless, the route has not at all times been easy, with countless hurdles that have had to be overcome in order to reach this point.
On the basis of technology, the market is segmented into dendritic cells (DC) cancer vaccines, recombinant cancer vaccines, antigen/adjuvant cancer vaccines, and viral vector & DNA cancer vaccines. The recombinant cancer vaccines dominated the market in 2020.
Recombinant poxvirus vaccines are reportedly safe and can express substantial amounts of foreign DNA. Numerous ongoing trials are investigating recombinant vectors, most using modified poxviruses such as vaccinia or avipoxvirus. The immunogenic efficacy of vaccinia is self-limiting, however, and the host generally neutralizes the virus after one or two vaccinations.
North America accounted for the largest share of the global cancer vaccines market in 2020. Moreover, Asia is likely to show lucrative growth during the forecast period.
Cancer is a major public health problem and is the second leading cause of death in the United States and worldwide. Cancer is responsible for over 8.8 and 1.6 million deaths globally and domestically and nearly one in six deaths are attributable to cancer. In the United States, prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers account for 44% of all cases in men, with prostate cancer accounting for one in five new diagnoses. Breast, lung, and colorectal cancers account for one-half of all cases in women, with breast cancer accounting for 29% of new diagnoses.
