Immunotherapy - Tumors

The mainstay of cancer treatment has historically involved therapies, such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation that were developed without regard for the patient's immune system. These therapies include nonspecific activation of the immune system using toll‐like receptor ligands, cytokines or immune checkpoint inhibitors, or specific treatments, like monoclonal antibody administration or vaccination, that directly target cancer cells. Perhaps, the most promising specific therapy is the adoptive transfer of genetically engineered tumour‐reactive T cells, an approach that has already proven curative in some patients with metastatic disease. Cumulatively, these new immune‐based approaches have great promise to revolutionise cancer therapy

 In the past few years, the rapidly advancing field of cancer immunology has produced several new methods of treating cancer, called immunotherapies, that increase the strength of immune responses against tumors. Immunotherapies either stimulate the activities of specific components of the immune system or counteract signals produced by cancer cells that suppress immune responses.
