A note from Cleveland Clinic

Immunotherapy holds a lot of promise for treating and curing cancers. The therapy treats a wide range of cancers. Many clinical trials are underway to find new ways to engage the body’s immune system to fight cancer. You may receive immunotherapy as a standalone treatment or along with other cancer treatments. Your healthcare provider can discuss whether immunotherapy is the right treatment for you.
