Despite the recent advances in cancer treatment, this disease continues to pose a serious threat to public health. Nanoparticle-based delivery platforms have been shown to be a promising strategy for cancer immunotherapy. Therapeutic cancer vaccines are designed specifically to elicit a potent adaptive immune response, giving rise to the specific eradication of cancer cells. Among the different synthetic nanoparticle carriers currently available calcium phosphate nanoparticles (CaP NPs) are the most promising potential vaccine transporters, and have attracted increasing attention during the past decade. In this thesis, the synthesis of a novel CaP NP vaccine is described and the further inve..
