Immunotherapy / Checkpoint Inhibitors
Dr. Martin Wiesenfeld Oncology Lecture Series: Immunotherapy / Checkpoint Inhibitors. Immunotherapy treatment uses certain factors of a person’s immune system to fight disease such as cancer. An important function of the immune system is its ability to tell the difference between normal cells and those that are foreign. This in turn allows the immune system to attack the foreign cells while leaving normal cells alone. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are drugs designed to assist the immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells. In the last few years, immunotherapy has gained significance in the treatment of some types of cancer. The second annual Wiesenfeld lecture will provide education on the newer types of immune treatments now being researched and discuss how immunotherapy will impact the way we treat cancer in the future.
