Could a vaccine for specific forms of cancer be a realistic prospect in the future? Based upon research into rhythms in the body, research shows that it may be a viable possibility. Press play to learn:

  • If the time cancer treatment is administered can make a difference
  • Can the sequence or timing of vaccines cause variation in efficacy?
  • How the body regulates levels of inflammation

Brendon Coventry, Associate Professor of Surgery in Adelaide at the University of South Australia, discusses his work with rhythms in the body and how this can affect optimal treatment.

By treating patients at abnormal times throughout the day, new treatments may become more or less effective even if inconvenient for practitioners. This will afford researchers a unique perspective when it comes to treating cancer and may even unlock new therapeutic methods and treatments.

Cycles that involve CRP in the body can lead to certain forms of cancer, especially colorectal cancer. Based on a seven-day process, many points of data point towards the body's reliance on cycles and how this reliance will interact with vaccines and treatments for cancer.
