A lot of scientists worked on the development of a cancer vaccine. An international group of scientists from the US, Germany and Austria announced the release of a cancer vaccine, which is safe and effective to prevent melanoma.

The tests were conducted in the following way: the scientists invited six people with a malignant tumor. According to the results of the vaccination, four patients have no longer had the development of melanoma.

Each vaccine is individual for the patient, because it is based on ribonucleic acid. RNA is one of the three main macromolecules (the other two are DNA and proteins). Thirteen people were involved in this study eight of which ended up with cancer disappeared.
