Immunotherapy & Targeted Therapy

It is a treatment of disease to suppress induces or enhances the immune response. Few types of immunotherapy are also sometimes called biologic therapy or biotherapy. Suppression immunotherapies is a part of this in which Immunosuppressive drugs help manage organ transplantation and autoimmune disease. Therapies such as granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, interferons,imiquimod and cellular membrane fractions from bacteria are licensed for medical use. Immunotherapy also includes the monoclonal antibodies, adoptive cell therapies and cancer vaccines. The unveiling of the sequence of the human genome, upgrading bioinformatics tools and optimized immunological analytical tools have made it possible to screen any given protein for immunogenic epitopes. Cancer immunotherapy introduces a diverse set of therapeutic strategies designed to induce the patient's own immune system to fight the tumor. Vaccines to generate specific immuneresponses in research of malignant melanoma and renal cell carcoma. Sipuleucel-T is a vaccine-like strategy is also used for prostate cancer Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation  also a class of immunotherapy.

It is the bedrock of precision medicine.  Angiogenesis inhibitors are the class of targeted therapy which is under the Small-molecule drugs. Monoclonal antibody therapy is another strategy in which the therapeutic agent is an antibody which binds to a protein on the surface of the cancer cells which includes anti-HER2/neu antibody trastuzumab used in breast cancer, and the anti-CD20 antibody rituximab, used B-cell malignancies. Photodynamic therapy also a part of targeted therapy.
