Immunotherapy is a type of treatment method that works by using certain components of a person's immune system to treat the disease.
There are two ways by which these therapies work:
- Activation immunotherapies work by enhancing or stimulating the immune system. Examples in this category work to destroy cancer cells.
- Suppression immunotherapies work by inhibiting or suppressing the immune system. Examples in this category are used to treat allergies and autoimmune diseases.
