Several important features of immunotherapy make for a more specific answer to cancer.
- Cancer immunotherapy can work on many different types of cancer
- Immunotherapy enables the immune system to recognize and target cancer cells, making it a universal answer to cancer.
- The list of cancers that are currently treated using immunotherapy is extensive.
- Immunotherapy has been an effective treatment for patients with certain types of cancer that have been resistant to chemotherapy and radiation treatment (e.g., melanoma).
