From the authors: “Immunoinformatics may efficiently improve the computational techniques that provide useful cost- and time-effective advantage in the development of novel vaccines against cancer. Of five predicted potential T cell epitopes, two epitopes (C6 and ALB) were found as liver cancer therapeutic vaccine candidates to effectively induce the immune response.” 

This study is highlighted as one of July’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
