These treatments can either help the immune system attack the cancer directly or stimulate the immune system in a more general way.
Immunotherapy is an effective treatment for patients with certain types of cancer that have been resistant to chemotherapy and radiation treatment, and has also been approved as a first line of treatment in several cancers. It may be given alone or in combination with other cancer treatments.

Immunotherapy represents the most promising new cancer treatment approach since the development of the first chemotherapies in the 1940s
