In the world that’s full of hardships, immunotherapy has come up as a ray of hope.
Of a new day.
A new life.
One where you beat Cancer.
Recent researches have shown that immunotherapy has surpassed other cancer treatments like chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and has resulted in increased remissions rates (recoveries) and survival rates.
Treating malicious cancer cells using immune cell response has been into consideration for quite some time, but it was the clinical trials conducted for lung cancer and skin cancer treatments in recent times that suggested about potentials of immunotherapy a promising cancer treatment.
So, what’s new in immunotherapy?
Advanced Monoclonal Antibodies
There are two types of immunotherapy treatments: checkpoint inhibitors and CAR T- cell therapy. Both of these are given in form of specific drugs, either directly by mouth (oral immunotherapy), or by injecting into the blood stream using vaccines.
When we talk about checkpoint inhibitors, they are aimed at making immune system target cancer cells. Our body release proteins, which are at times manipulated by cancer cells to hide from immune cells response.
With advanced monoclonal antibodies, it’s possible to check these cancer cells precisely, without any manipulation to proteins by cancer cells.
Newer CAR T-cell therapy
This is aimed to attack cancer cells and kill them in the body using immune cell T-cells. With recent developments, the therapy involves a more personalized attack, and this has resulted in cancer recoveries.
Better therapeutic vaccines
There are several types of vaccination therapies involved in immunotherapy like tumor cell vaccines, antigen vaccines, etc. All of them are aimed at boosting the immune system to kill cancer. With recent advancements in immunotherapy drugs, these vaccines have come up as a better cancer cure.
Zero Side Effects
At the initial stages, patients observed flu-like symptoms post immunotherapy treatment, but that’s not the case anymore. Today, it is a completely risk-free treatment.
Impact of immunotherapy on major cancer types
Immunotherapy cancer treatment has significantly increased the survival rate up by 5 years, for all cancer types like lung cancer, skin cancer, Leukemia, Breast Cancer, etc. With immunotherapy, it is possible to stop the growth cancer cells to other body parts, without affecting healthy cells in the body. It is now possible to have a quality life post treatment with lesser risks, courtesy immunotherapy. It has been effective in treating patients of all age groups and cancer types.
