Global Immunotherapy Drugs Market: Snapshot

Cancer immunotherapy requires the use of a body’s immune system to fight off cancer. The three types of immunotherapies available are passive, active, and hybrid. The core functionality of immunotherapy revolves around the presence of tissue-associated antigens, or TAA’s, which are molecules present on the surface of cancer cells. These are more commonly found as macromolecules such as carbohydrates, or proteins. In the case of active immunotherapy, the immune system is directed to attack cancer cells by identifying TAAs, whereas passive immunotherapies involve the improvement of a body’s current cancer fighting responses. These include the usage of cytokines, lymphocytes, and monoclonal bodies.

Immunotherapy may also be recognized as biological response modifier therapy, or biological therapy. Apart from cancer, the more common types of diseases that can be fought off using immunotherapy are psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, colitis, Crohn’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. The principal cause of requiring immunotherapies is the added boost they provide to a body’s immune system to defeat cancer, which the body could not have done otherwise. There are some biological response modifies that a human body can already produce, but the volume may not always be enough to successfully cure cancer, in which case lab produced drugs and treatments come into play. From a simpler perspective, immunotherapies can provide different types of responses within a body to fight cancer. These include building additional cancer-fighting cells, increase the vulnerability of cancer cells, convert cancer cells to normal ones, or manipulate the growth pattern and rate of cancer cells.

Global Immunotherapy Drugs Market: Overview
