Immunotherapy – the treatment of abnormal antigen cells by targeting them using a person’s immune system, by making it strong.
The word itself clears the meaning and intent that it’s a treatment to cure a person by increasing the body’s capacity to fight a disease. It is the new trendy in the field of cancer treatments and has produced miraculous results where it came out as a ray of hope for cancer cure.
Let’s get to know why one should choose immunotherapy for cancer treatments –
1. It Helps to Target Cancer Cells Better
Cancer cells are spread across the body in the specific part where they form a tumor. These cells are detected with the help of T cells which acts as a receptor and send back an immune response. Through a strong immune system, these cells can send a potential response that cures these cells.
Additionally, immunotherapy is different from other cancer treatments as it doesn’t target only the part where the tumor is present in the body. Instead, it targets several areas, specifically for each patient and includes monitoring how the patient responds to the treatment.
2. Proven Successful Cancer Cure
According to a report published in TimesofIndia – Arrica Wallace of US was given an ultimatum of a year to live when she was detected with stage three of cervical cancer. There was no chemo that helped her condition and the mother of two then got enrolled for immunotherapy cancer treatment.
After 4 months of treatment her tumor had started to shrink and after 22 months of treatment, she was detected with ‘no disease’ in her body. Immunotherapy miraculously cured her cancer and she is now a healthy 37 years old women.
3. Now an Immunotherapy Clinic in India
Lung cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer amongst men in India. Immunotherapy has proven very effective in its cure, but our country lacked the technology and capacity for this specific type of cancer treatment.
The treatment demands a certain specific specialization and a lot of advanced equipments. There was no dedicated clinic till the ‘CancerHealer’ brought the advent of new age ‘Immunotherapy Clinic in India’.
