How Immunotherapy Cancer Treatment Works

Immunotherapy is a more sustainable approach that provides long-term protection against cancer. Effects of cancer immunotherapy treatment may last long after the completion of the therapy.

The length of treatment varies with each patient and the chosen therapy. But in some cases, immunotherapy may take longer than chemotherapy because doctors need to ascertain that the treatment is mobilizing the immune system to fight the tumors.

Since immunotherapy, a new alternative cancer treatment to chemotherapy, acts like a cancer vaccine, patients can now enjoy a safer, more efficient cancer treatment, with less frequent dosing and fewer adverse effects.

Immunotherapy utilizes your immune cells to specifically target cancer cells. It is less invasive and has fewer adverse effects compared to conventional cancer treatment. This is achieved by obtaining sample T-cells, which are immune cells that naturally destroy pathogens and cancer cells, hijacking them to specifically target tumor cells that are usually in stealth mode from intrinsic immune cells, and are given back to the patient intravenously.

Normally, T-cells have checkpoints that regulate their activity, turning off their offensive potential upon contact with healthy cells. Cancer cells take advantage of this and turn off the T-cells, so that they bypass the cancer cells. With immunotherapy, the modified immune cells continue to function upon encountering tumor cells, preventing deactivation, and ultimately eliminating the cancer cells.

As a progressive pathological process that can be diagnosed in its more advanced stages, cancer may call for multiple forms of treatment to sufficiently deal with the problem. Immunotherapy can be combined with other cancer treatments to improve prognosis, offering versatility, efficiency, and better outcomes.

How Immunotherapy Treatment Is Administered

As immunotherapy comprises various different types of medication to target antigens and ultimately treat cancer, administration methods can vary. These include:

  • Oral pills and tablets
  • Topical creams (usually reserved for early stages of skin cancer)
  • Intravenous (IV) infusions injected directly into a vein
  • Via specific transfer factor treatment 
  • Intravesical injections introduced directly into the bladder

The exact dosage and frequency of treatment depends on the type of immunotherapy you receive, along with the type of cancer you have and how your body reacts to the chosen therapy. Immunotherapy treatments may be administered daily, weekly, or monthly, or they may be administered cyclically, meaning a period of treatment followed by a period of rest. Consult your doctor to discuss not only the types of immunotherapy but also the effects of immunotherapy to help determine the best course of action for your health, cancer type, and personal needs.
