Vasso was the first to co-develop a method of targeting dendritic cells to stimulate the immune system in the early 1990s, which today, targeting dendritic cell receptors for vaccines is used by hundreds of labs around the world. These studies led to >25 phase I, II, III human clinical trials of vaccine formulations for breast & ovarian cancer. Of note, one of the studies now has long-term follow-up data showing that 25 years later those injected with the vaccine remain cancer free. She has developed vaccines for MS which is currently in phase I human clinical trial, and has developed vaccines in pre-clinical settings against type-1 diabetes, drug addiction and mental health related issues.
