Immunotherapy for melanoma

 

 

Immunotherapy is one of the latest promising methods for melanoma treatment. It works successfully stimulating the body’s immune system in order to increase its ability to identify and kill cancer cells.

Immune system protects the body from attacking infections caused by viruses and bacteria and abnormal cells of the human body (cancer) as well. Usually immune system is able to distinguish healthy normal cells from abnormal cells. But sometimes this mechanism does not work it cannot identify melanoma as dangerous cells.

 

Our oncologists use systemic immunotherapy in Israel for the treatment of metastatic cancer.

♦ Ipilimumab (Yrvoy) – an antibody CTLA-4.
♦ Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) – an anti-PD-1.
