mRNA vaccines trigger better response in cancer patients

Of 211 cancer patients included in a study coordinated by the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) and the Hospital Professor Doutor Fernando Fonseca E.P.E., 43% developed antibodies after the first dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, increasing to 83% after complete vaccination. However, the percentage of patients who developed antibodies during this period varied according to the vaccine that was administered and the type of treatment they were undergoing.
