In this series, we look at the science behind some of the most promising approaches to treating cancer.
In season one, we tackle immunotherapy, a form of treatment that involves using the power of the immune system to fight disease. Immunotherapy has had some impressive results as a cancer treatment. We'll look at different types of immunotherapy, where
it has worked, where it hasn't, and what lies ahead for the prospect of using the immune system to fight cancer.
Just what is immunotherapy? How does it work and who can benefit from it? We walk through the basics of immunotherapy with Osama Rahma, MD, a medical oncologist at Dana-Farber's Center for Immuno-Oncology.
