Immunotherapy strengthens your immune system and helps it to detect and fight cancerous cells effectively. According to NIH, targeted cancer therapy blocks cancer growth by interfering with specific molecules that are involved in the growth, progression and spread of cancer . The process involves drawing your blood, then identifying your cancerous cells and your immune cells and differentiating them. The immune cells are grown in the presence of your cancer cells and trained to identify special markers that make your cancer cells unique and able to hide within your body. Your custom-made immune cells target and destroy only your cancerous cells while leaving your healthy cells untouched. An individual, personalized protocol will be made specifically for you to ensure maximal benefit whilst minimizing any harmful effects that the cancer may have caused to your body
