With the success of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, research into vaccinations for cancer, cardiovascular, and autoimmune illnesses is “tremendously promising.”

Therapies based on mRNA function by instructing cells to produce a protein that starts the body’s immunological response to sickness, according to The Guardian. For instance, an mRNA-based cancer vaccine would “warn the immune system of a cancer that is already growing in a patient’s body, so that it can attack and destroy it, without destroying healthy cells.”

Moderna’s chief medical officer, Dr. Paul Burton, told The Guardian that he anticipates his pharmaceutical business will provide therapies for “all sorts of disease areas” by 2030 and that it is working on cancer vaccinations that will target various tumour types. It will “save many hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives” by providing customised cancer vaccines, according to Burton.

The most dangerous kind of skin cancer, melanoma, was 44 percent less likely to return after treatment with Merck’s immunotherapy medicine Keytruda, according to a phase two clinical trial Moderna disclosed in late 2022. The Food and Drug Administration granted this combination a Breakthrough Therapy Designation in February, which speeds up the development and evaluation of medications intended to treat illnesses that are potentially fatal.

In the next ten years, Burton predicts, “we will be approaching a world where you truly can identify the genetic cause of a disease and, with relative simplicity, go and edit that out and repair it using mRNA-based technology.” Vaccine research is currently showing “tremendous promise,” according to Burton.
