Need to know

  • A closer look at immunotherapy icon plus

    There are many different types of immunotherapy. Some boost the immune system, helping your body attack cancer cells. Other types are designed to slow down the proteins that help cancer cells grow.

    Immunotherapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment in combatting cancer cells, or it can be used alongside other treatments to strengthen the immune system’s response. This break-through therapy has the potential to treat a broad spectrum of patients.

    Depending on the stage and type of tumour, your consultant will identify whether immunotherapy is suitable for you.
