WHY IMMUNOTHERAPY TREATMENT?

Immunotherapy is a breakthrough treatment that strengthens the immune system – enabling it to recognize, remember, and fight cancer cells. The treatment, applied through an immune checkpoint blocker, may help slow down or stop the growth of cancer cells in the patient’s body – boosting overall survival and improving the quality of life.

To learn more about immunotherapy and how it may help you or a loved one, talk to a medical oncologist.

Biomarker Testing

Biomarkers are crucial measurable indicators of the presence or severity of a disease and its state. Understanding the presence of biomarkers can help doctors predict the body’s response to certain treatments.

MSI Testing

A specialized type of procedure called microsatellite instability (MSI) testing can provide significant benefits to advanced cancer patients.
