Certain cancers like cervical, Anal, Throat are caused due to Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). People with the chronic infections of Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) has a great risk of liver cancer. Vaccines that help protect against infections with these viruses might also help prevent some of these cancers. Cancer treatment vaccines are different from the vaccines that work against viruses. These vaccines try to get the immune system to mount an attack against cancer cells in the body. Instead of preventing disease, they are meant to get the immune system to attack a disease that already exists. Sipuleucel-T is the only vaccine for cancer approved by USA.
