What is Immunotherapy?

Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses the body’s immune system to help fight cancer. It works by either boosting the immune system’s ability to recognize and attack cancer cells or by using man-made immune system proteins to target and destroy cancer cells.

As with any medical treatment, immunotherapy may have some side effects. However, the severity and type of side effects vary from person to person. Some common side effects include fatigue, nausea, and skin reactions. Our team at Unique Hospital Cancer Centre, led by our expert medical oncologist, Dr. Ashish Gupta (USA-Board Certified Oncologist), will closely monitor and manage any side effects that occur.

Immunotherapy works by targeting specific proteins or molecular pathways that are involved in the growth and survival of cancer cells. By targeting these proteins, it can help the immune system recognize and destroy cancer cells.

Our experienced team at Unique Hospital Cancer Centre will work closely with you to minimize the side effects of immunotherapy. This may include prescribing medications to manage symptoms or making changes to your treatment plan.

There are several types of immunotherapy, including immune checkpoint inhibitors, oncolytic virus therapy, and T-cell therapy. Our team will evaluate your specific condition and determine the best type of immunotherapy for you.

Immunotherapy can be given at different stages of cancer treatment, including as a first-line treatment or after other treatments have been tried. Our team will work closely with you to determine the best time for immunotherapy based on your case.

At Unique Hospital Cancer Centre, our team of dedicated medical professionals is committed to providing personalized and precise care for every patient. Led by Dr. Ashish Gupta, a top-rated medical oncologist and hematologist oncologist, we strive to offer the latest and most effective treatments for cancer, including immunotherapy.

The length of immunotherapy treatment varies depending on the type of cancer being treated and the individual’s response to the treatment. Some treatments may only take a few weeks, while others may require several months. Our team will closely monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
