Vaccine trials activity relative to cancer prevalence and survival. Scatter plot of five year survival rate against cancer incidence rate for major cancers. Each circle represents an individual cancer type. The incidence rate (cases per 100,000 population) on the x-axis is log scaled for visual clarity. The red color of the circles represents the number of trials that have been conducted for that cancer type – the higher the number, the darker the circle. Grey circles represent cancer types which have not been studied using clinical vaccine trials. Selected cancer types are labeled.
