Understanding cancer treatments
Cellular therapy is a type of immunotherapy that uses transplanted cells to help the body fight infection. Research is still evolving, leading to breakthroughs in the cell types that can be used to treat various cancers. Stem cell transplantation, including bone marrow transplants, is among the most common forms of cell therapy and is often used to treat blood cancers and hematologic conditions.
Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment that uses substances made by your body or in a lab to help your immune system fight cancer. Some forms of immunotherapy are designed to boost your overall immune system, while others help your immune system target specific cells. Immunotherapy is a viable treatment option for many types of cancers, and researchers are continually developing new techniques.
Chemotherapy is a common form of cancer treatment that uses drugs to destroy or slow the growth of cancer cells. Used to treat a broad range of cancer types, chemotherapy may be prescribed by itself or in combination with other therapies to stop cancer from growing or prevent it from returning.
