The American Lung Association has some sobering statistics: more than 540,000 living Americans have been diagnosed with lung cancer at some point in their lives. It is also the most common form of cancer worldwide. The cost of lives claimed by lung cancer is compounded by the fact that it costs the American health care system billions of dollars annually. As with all cancers, whether or not the patient survives, lung cancer is a devastating diagnosis. Thankfully, immunotherapy cancer treatments are changing this reality and showing real promise for better outcomes.
What is immunotherapy cancer treatment?
Immunotherapy uses a person’s own immune system to attack cancerous tumors. The exciting news is that it is showing great promise even in late-stage cancer patients. In some (and growing) cases, immunotherapy cancer treatment not just works initially but forces the cancer into remission for years.
A type of immunotherapy cancer treatment called CAR-T is used as follows: the cancer patient’s T-cells are collected and modified to contain chimeric antigen receptors, or CARS. The modified cells are then injected back into to the patient. These CARS grab the antigens on the tumor cells and destroy them, thus destroying the tumors. It sounds like sci-fi, but it is science – without the fiction. It is an important medical advancement used to save lives.
