Immunotherapy is a treatment carried out by optimizing the work of the immune system to fight disease. One of them has been applied to cancer patients. Immunotherapy treatment is done by making the immune system more able to recognize cancer cells and strengthen the immune system's response to these cancer cells, so that it can slow down or even stop the development of malignant cells.
The development of treatment methods in this way is based on that immunotherapy is more effective than other treatment methods, can increase the effectiveness of other treatments, has smaller side effects and there are immunomemories (where immune cells have the ability to remember cancer cells, so they will be attacked immediately when they reappear. ).
However, immunotherapy also has limitations, which can damage other organs, the results of treatment require a long time, not necessarily suitable for everyone and there is a possibility that the body becomes immune to this treatment so it does not work.
Therefore, careful consideration is needed to decide whether to undergo treatment in this way or not.
Thus hopefully useful.
