Immunotherapy for Mesothelioma

What is immunotherapy?

Immunotherapy is a mesothelioma treatment option that aims to use the body’s natural defense system to attack cancerous cells. Everyone has an immune system that protects against diseases transmitted through bacteria and viruses. Developments within the past decade have revealed that the body’s immune system may also be able to protect against cancer, not just bacteria and virus-caused infections. Out of that discovery, immunotherapy was born.

Evidence has suggested that a body’s immune system may be able to block the spread of cancer as well as slow down tumor growth. Immunotherapy aims to develop an immune reaction to tumors and may be effective in combating mesothelioma, however, this treatment option is still in its infancy.

Active vs. Passive Immunotherapy

There are two main types of immunotherapy – active and passive.

The specifics explaining how exactly immunotherapy works can become complex very quickly, which is why we encourage you to speak directly with your doctor about the best treatment option for you.
