Immunotherapy


Some drugs are given to people with cancer to stimulate their natural immune systems to recognize and attack cancer cells. These drugs offer a unique method of treatment, and are often considered to be separate from chemotherapy. Compared with other forms of cancer treatment such as surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy, immunotherapy is still fairly new.

There are different types of immunotherapy. Active immunotherapies stimulate the body’s own immune system to fight the disease. Passive immunotherapies do not rely on the body to attack the disease; instead, they use immune system components (such as antibodies) created outside the body.

Types of immunotherapies and some examples include:

Monoclonal antibody therapy (passive immunotherapies), such as rituximab (Rituxan ) and alemtuzumab (Campath )
Non-specific immunotherapies and adjuvants (other substances or cells that boost the immune response), such as BCG, interleukin-2 (IL-2), and interferon-alfa
Immunomodulating drugs, for instance, thalidomide and lenalidomide (Revlimid)
Cancer vaccines (active specific immunotherapies). In 2010, the FDA approved the first vaccine to treat cancer (the Provenge vaccine for advanced prostate cancer); other vaccines for many different types of cancer are being studied.
