Your immune system has powerful anti-cancer abilities. In fact, your immune system stops most misbehaving cells before they can become cancerous. Immunology, the study of the immune system, has started to harness this ability. Immunology has discovered and learned to activate many of our body’s anti-cancer resources to target and eliminate cancer cells.
What is Immunology?
Immunology is a field of science that studies the immune system. Your immune system defends you from viruses and bacteria, monitors your cells, and eliminates ones that could turn into cancer. Treatments using the immune system to attack cancer are called immunotherapy. They can effectively treat many cancers with fewer side effects than other methods.
