Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a treatment option that uses the body’s natural defense mechanism, the immune system, to fight diseases including cancer. Immunotherapy works by:
  • stimulating your own immune system to work harder
  • slowing the growth and/or spread of tumors
  • enhancing normal immune system functions with proteins that improve immune system function
Immunotherapy is typically used with other cancer treatments, but can be used by itself to treat cancer. It is intended to improve patient outcomes.
