Immunotherapy for Prostate Cancer
Immunotherapy (also called biological therapy) is a promising treatment for prostate cancer, including advanced or recurrent forms of the disease. Your care team at CTCA uses a variety of immune-based strategies to eliminate a prostate cancer tumor and prevent its recurrence.
Cancer may develop when the immune system breaks down or is not functioning adequately. Immunotherapy is designed to repair, stimulate or enhance your body's own immune responses. It may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments, such as radiation therapy and hormone therapy .
