Immunotherapy is the use of medicine, either alone or alongside other treatments, to help the body's immune system fight cancer.

There are several types of immunotherapy, as well as side effects.

Certain types of immunotherapy attack cancer or slow its spread to other parts of the body. Different types make it easier for the immune system to destroy cancer cells.

At the OSF Saint Anthony Center for Cancer Care, our cancer specialists work with you to determine which treatments to use for your diagnosis.

We help you develop a plan and alter it as needed as you progress on your journey.

Our coordinated team makes sure that you understand your options and the impacts of your decisions.
