  • Immunotherapy
    Under normal circumstances, an immune response is triggered when cancer cells are identified by the immune system. However, certain types of cancer may interfere with this mechanism and suppress immune responses, making one prone to cancer attack.

    There are several forms of immunotherapy on the market. They can either help the immune system to recognise the cancer, or stimulate the immune system in various ways. Checkpoint inhibitor is a class of drugs (e.g. Pembrolizumab, Nivolumab, Atezolizumab, Durvalumab, Avelumab) that can successfully treat melanoma, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, lymphoma, lung cancer and many other tumour types. It helps the immune system to respond more strongly to a tumor by removing the inhibitory effects of tumor on the immune T-cells.
