Mesothelioma Treatment: Immunotherapy

Cancer can be incredibly difficult to treat. Each year, scientists and doctors work together to test and implement new treatment methods for various types of cancer. While chemotherapy is the most well-known method of treatment, immunotherapy has proven to be effective in treating certain kinds of cancer.

Immunotherapy, also known as biotherapy or biologic therapy, is a treatment that strategically works to stimulate the immune system to reject the growth of tumors. Immunotherapy works in two ways: it can be used to stimulate your immune system to work much more efficiently or man-made immune system proteins can be added to your body’s natural immune system to help stimulate the desired cancer-fighting behavior.

More often than not, this method is used in conjunction with other cancer treatments. Immunotherapy has been used to treat cancer since the late 1800s, when a New York surgeon, William Coley, MD, began to use bacteria to fight his patients’ cancer. The introduction of radiation therapy caused the use of immunotherapy treatments to decrease; however, many modern doctors believe that it is still a very useful treatment method for cancers that are in the early stages of development.

Immunotherapy can be used to help treat mesothelioma. If you are suffering from mesothelioma due to an employer’s or manufacturer’s negligent use of asbestos, speaking with a mesothelioma attorney is the first step in protecting your rights.
