Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment that fights the disease with the body’s own immune system, utilizing certain drugs, to boost the immune system. Immunotherapy works better for some types of cancer than it does for others. For some of these cancers, it is used on its own, but for others it seems to work better when used with other types of treatment.
