Traditional cancer therapies, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, are toxic and often ineffective. The last four decades have seen only modest improvements in cancer therapies, while the incidence of cancer in the United States has risen to 1.7 million new diagnoses each year (source: National Cancer Institute).
Only immunotherapy can:
- Augment, retrain, or retarget the immune system to fight cancer while preserving healthy tissue
- Harness the body’s natural defenses
- Treat cancers that traditional therapies cannot
- Have a greater impact on reducing risk of recurrence or resistance
Immunotherapy is the best next step toward realizing a more effective, less damaging, and potentially curative standard of care.
