What is immunotherapy?
Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that helps strengthen your immune system so it can destroy the cancer cells.
Immunotherapy is currently still under development. It is not a standard treatment for all kinds of cancer yet. At the Netherlands Cancer Institute, we would like to see this treatment type available for even more cancer types. This is why we are a leading party in immunotherapy research.
What to expect?
The treatment is usually administered intravenously (by IV). Sometimes one treatment is sufficient, and sometimes we will ask you to come back for another round.
