PCaSO has a section in our information booklet, Knowledge Empowers, about Immunotherapy under ‘Emerging Therapies and Treatment Options’ which is worth reading, but briefly – Immunotherapy has become a standard treatment for some types of advanced cancer, both lung and skin cancers have been treated with immunotherapy drugs, it is now being developed for advanced prostate cancer patients. It works by helping the immune system to recognise and attack cancer cells and can be delivered on its own or with other prostate treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
