Immunotherapy at Springfield Hospital

What is Immunotherapy?

Cancer immunotherapy, also known as immuno-oncology, is a form of cancer treatment. It uses substances to boost or change your body’s own immune system so that it can find and attack cancer cells and prevent, control, and eliminate cancer. Many types of immunotherapies are increasingly being used to help extend the lives of many cancer patients. Immunotherapy for cancer is available in a variety of forms. These include targeted antibodies, cancer vaccines, adoptive cell transfer, tumour-infecting viruses, checkpoint inhibitors, cytokines, and adjuvants. They are a form of biotherapy, or biologic therapy, as they use materials from living organisms to fight disease.
