Abstract Plasmid DNA and viral vector-based cancer vaccines have many inherent features that make them promising cancer vaccine candidates. This review focuses on the use of plasmid DNA and viral vector vaccines to deliver tumour-specific antigens to induce a tumour-specific immune response. Examples of different antigen delivery systems that have been tested in recent clinical trials are summarised and advantages and disadvantages of a number of delivery systems and approaches are discussed. Finally, an outlook on how plasmid DNA and viral vectors might be developed further as cancer vaccines is provided.
