Biological therapy

A therapy that harnesses the body’s natural abilities to help stop or slow the growth of tumour cells. They work in different ways including: boosting the immune system, changing the ways tumour cells signal to each other to grow, or by stopping tumour cells grow new blood vessels which allows them to spread. Examples would include immunotherapies, monoclonal antibodies, gene therapy and vaccines.
