Abstract

Malignant cells gain the ability to self-renew and reacquire expression of proteins associated with embryonic development. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Kooreman et al. (2018) demonstrate that vaccination of mice with syngeneic inactivated iPSCs generates T cell immunity against embryonic antigens and provides resistance to several different types of cancers.
