Immunity therapy treatment or immunotherapy, also known as biologic therapy is a cancer treatment where the body's defense mechanism is utilized to fight cancer. This procedure either uses substances made by the body itself or in the laboratory in order to boost the function of the immunity system. Immunotherapy cancer treatment can either stop or simply slow down the growth of cancer cells and prevent the cancerous cells from spreading to different regions of the body. There are different types of immunity therapy like oncolytic virus therapy, T-cell therapy, monoclonal antibodies and cancer vaccines. Some of the immunotherapy treatments can mark the cancer cells, find and destroy them. Other treatments simply boost the immune system so that they can fight against any cancerous growth. Till now, immunotherapy is as widely used as surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, because the potential immunotherapy side effects are still unknown, however, there are clinical trials where this process has been proved to be quite effective. The duration of the treatment will largely depend on the extent of the disease, how well the patient is responding to the method and how well the body is accepting this new mode of treatment. Patients need to consult specialized doctor instead of general physicians to know the exact duration of the treatment, as this method of treatment is known to cause quite a few side effects like swelling, itchiness, pain, rashes and even flu-like symptoms like weakness, chills, vomits, headache or nausea. Immunotherapy can be an intravenous, oral, topical or intravesical process.
