Cancer vaccines are either preventive or therapeutic. Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination is a well-known preventative that works against the virus, which may play a role in the onset of cervical carcinomas. On the other hand, a cancer vaccine used in the therapy of prostate cancer has recently been approved. The research is developing and characterizing more and more such vaccines, with the use of microplate readers becoming common place.
