KEYWORDS

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to identify the new era of treating cancers, known as immunotherapy, Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment which uses a patient’s own body cells to fight the cancerous cells. The first part of this paper identifies what this treatment is, as well as the pros and cons. The second part talks about the different types of immunotherapy, how they can affect the body, and the way each variation of the treatment works. By perfecting the process of immunotherapy, we can direct future research on a cure for cancer.
