Cancer Immune therapy

Cancer immunotherapy—treatments that harness and enhance the innate powers of the immune system to fight cancer—represents the most promising new cancer treatment approach since the development of the first chemotherapies in the late 1940s. Because of the immune system’s extraordinary power, its capacity for memory, its exquisite specificity, and its central and universal role in human biology, these treatments have the potential to achieve complete, long-lasting remissions and cancer cures, with few or no side effects, and for any cancer patient, regardless of their cancer type. Immunotherapy is treatment that uses your body's own immune system to help fight cancer. These treatment modalities are all based on destroying cancer cells by burning them (irradiation), poisoning them (chemotherapy) or removing them (surgery). While they can effectively kill or remove cancer cells, the use of these treatments often is limited because large numbers of healthy cells also tend to be destroyed. This often results in extreme morbidity and/or disfigurement of the patients treated with them.

In the worst cases, these treatments can sometimes result in the patient's death. Immunotherapy is one of the more recent approaches to cancer therapy. It is based on the generally-accepted hypothesis that the immune system is the best tool humans have for fighting disease.
