Immunotherapy is becoming an increasingly important tool in the treatment of cancer, and some early success has been achieved in certain childhood cancers. It potentially offers increased effectiveness with fewer side. effects.
Immunotherapy uses components of the immune system, such as antibodies or certain types of white blood cells, to fight cancer. In addition, certain medications can be administered to patients in order to stimulate the immune system and improve its ability to kill cancer cells.
Strong basic laboratory research programs have led to active clinical trials using immunotherapy to treat neuroblastoma and other paediatric cancers.
