Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a type of biologic cancer treatment that focuses on using certain cells of your immune system to battle your cancer. It works by stimulating your immune system to kill cancer cells or marking cancer cells so your immune cells can easily find them to destroy. Immunotherapy is usually well tolerated with little or minor side effects but there is a small risk of severe immune reaction where your immune cells attack your healthy cells.
