Immunotherapy is one of our private pay cancer treatments at Williams Cancer Institute. Also known as biological therapy, this form of cancer treatment stimulates the immune system to target cancer cells. According to the National Cancer Institute, biological therapy entails the use of substances from living organisms that are either made by the body or through a laboratory.
It works by enhancing the immune system’s natural capabilities to recognize and target the cancer cells and eliminate them from the body. Cancer can often avoid the immune system’s many natural defenses, so the body needs treatment like immunotherapy to fight cancer cells. Immunotherapy may be the only therapy a cancer patient can opt for, or it can complement other treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
