Too much like us? Researchers uncover key reason a promising cancer therapy is often unsuccessful

Neoantigens, which are molecules found on tumor cells that incorporate mutations, help our immune system fight cancers and could be the most promising components of future cancer vaccines—if only scientists knew with a high degree of certainty which neoantigens work.
