Immunotherapy is an innovative type of cancer treatment that utilizes the body's own immune system to fight cancer. In haemato oncology, immunotherapy has become an important treatment option for various types of blood cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.
At Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad, we offer a range of immunotherapy treatments to our patients, including monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors. Our team of experienced hematologists/oncologists will evaluate each patient's individual needs and circumstances to determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
Immunotherapy works by targeting specific proteins or markers on cancer cells that help them evade the immune system's detection. By blocking these proteins or markers, immunotherapy can help the immune system recognize and attack cancer cells.
Immunotherapy can be used in combination with other treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, or as a standalone treatment. The decision to use immunotherapy will depend on various factors, including the type and stage of the cancer, the patient's overall health, and the treatment goals.
While immunotherapy can cause side effects, such as fatigue, fever, and muscle aches, our team of healthcare professionals is experienced in managing these side effects with medication and other supportive therapies.
Overall, immunotherapy has shown promising results in the treatment of various blood cancers, and ongoing research is exploring new ways to use this treatment approach to improve outcomes for patients.
