You might have wondered, why doesn’t your body’s immune system kill cancer?
I mean, our bodies have found a way to fight off so many other illnesses – the flu, colds, and so on – so what makes cancer different?
Think of it this way…
Cancer cells are sort of like an army that goes into battle and then steals the other army’s weapons. In this case, the other army is the immune system! Our immune system has so many resources…and cancer cells are smart enough to hijack them for their own nefarious purposes.
But there’s a silver lining. The immune system’s role in cancer is a huge part of cancer research right now…and it’s led to the development of immunotherapy!
Our cancer expert & research scientist, Alex Rolland, explains what’s going on in this video. ⬇️
You might remember me talking about immunotherapy in some of my past emails. (If you want to catch up, here’s a good video to start with.)
The more we know about the mechanisms behind cancer, the better we can treat and prevent it.
So if you want to better understand how medical science has managed to turn the tables on cancer using the body’s own immune system, watch this video!
Another key fact to remember
There are many different types of immunotherapy.
And even if you’ve been told you’re not a candidate based on, say, one test your oncologist conducted, you may still very well benefit from other types of immunotherapy.
Our job at CTOAM is to find out what treatment is going to give you the longest & healthiest life and then give your oncologist all the information they need to prescribe that exact treatment for you.
So if you’d like to find out if immunotherapy can be used to help you beat cancer, we’re here to help. Just click this link to register for a free consultation with our cancer care team, or simply send us an email and we’ll reach out asap.
