Discover hundreds of clinical trials for virtually all types of cancer.
Cancer attacks by hijacking your cells, causing them to rapidly multiply and create tumors. Your body’s immune system -- a network of cells and organs that identifies and defends against diseases -- often does not recognize cancer as a foreign invader like bacteria or viruses. Even if it does, the immune system may be overpowered by the spread of the disease.
Using immunotherapy – also called biological therapy -- we can train your immune system to recognize cancer cells and destroy them like any other disease. We also can use immunotherapy to strengthen your immune system and unleash its full potential in the battle against cancer.
We use several types of immunotherapy to treat cancer:
We offer immunotherapy treatment in clinical trials to treat brain tumors, breast cancer, and bladder cancer. Because immunotherapy is a relatively new form of treatment, options are constantly changing, and you may become a candidate for immunotherapy later on. Ask your doctor if you’re a good candidate for immunotherapy.
