Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy, also called biologic therapy, is a type of cancer treatment designed to boost the body’s inborn natural defenses to fight the cancer. It works in various ways, including stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, stopping cancer from spreading to other parts of the body, and helping the immune system work better at destroying cancer cells.

 

What Are The Benefits Of These Procedures?

Immunotherapy isn’t just one treatment; rather, it’s a group of treatment strategies.

  • Monoclonal antibodies mark cancer cells for destruction by immune cells, block the growth signals and receptors on cancer cells, and/or deliver other treatments directly to targeted cancer cells.
  • Oncolytic virus immunotherapy introduces viruses into the body that directly infect tumor cells, inducing an immune response against those infected cells. The viruses then release a protein that promotes an overall immune boost against the cancer.
  • Immune checkpoint inhibitors prevent cancer cells from turning off immune cells, and regulate the overall immune response to cancer.
  • Cancer vaccinations are engineered to direct immune cells to the cancer cells in the body.
  • Adoptive T-cell transfer (T-cell therapy) collects T cells from the patient and either multiplied to a mass quantity or engineered with new cancer-finding receptors before being re-administered to the patient.

 

Are These Procedures Safe?

A reaction to immunotherapy may lead to a sudden development of allergic symptoms upon administration of the dose of the vaccine. These symptoms can be mild or severe, ranging from runny nose to respiratory distress. Luckily, these symptoms are NOT common.
