MB 40x represents a technology platform for design of synthetic multi-epitope cancer vaccines where epitopes
from several tumor-associated antigens are coupled to a highly immunogenic carrier molecule, and formulated
in a highly immunogenic formulation. Proof of concept has been shown with the SialylTn containing prototype
vaccine MB 402.
