Empowering the Immune System: Immunotherapies release the brakes, revitalizing its attack on cancer cells. Promising but not infallible, they’ve revolutionized cancer care

Certain cancer drugs, such as immunotherapies, can help restore the immune system’s ability to fight tumors. These drugs work by removing the “brakes” on the immune system, allowing it to recognize and attack cancer cells more effectively. Immune checkpoint inhibitors, for instance, have shown promise in unleashing the body’s immune defenses against tumors. While not a guaranteed cure, they have transformed cancer treatment and hold significant potential for many patients in their battle against cancer.
