Immunotherapy in cancer treatment is an emerging and a promising concept. Over last few years, immunotherapy medicines have produced excellent benefits for cancer patients. Immunotherapy works by either correcting body’s own immune system thereby strengthening it against cancer or injecting immune proteins who can fight cancer cells efficiently in patients. Immunotherapy in cancer management efficiently helps body’s immune system identify genetic mutations which escape policing by body’s immunity and produce and grow cancer.
Being specific in nature it produces least side effects unlike chemotherapy. In many cases, it complements chemotherapy, helping patients with good treatment outcomes.
At Mumbai Oncocare Center, we have qualified faculty who has rich experience using immunotherapy in our cancer patients and we are proud to have produced satisfactory results for patients. Immunotherapy can be easily administered in day care setting and does not require hospital admissions. It is a sigh of relief for patients who do not want hassles of hospital admissions and excessive costs.
This can be done in a couple of ways:
- Stimulating your own immune system to work harder or smarter to attack cancer cells
- Giving you immune system components, such as man-made immune system proteins
