Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a treatment that fights cancer using the body’s immune system, in either a passive or active way. For decades, doctors have used a variety of therapies to enhance the immune system, but most treatments were non-specific until just a few years ago. Today, thanks to research, more specific immunotherapy treatments for cancer exist, and they are more commonly used, especially because of the development of monoclonal antibodies that have unique anti-tumor specificity.
