Also known as immunotherapy, biological therapy uses bacteria, viruses and natural bodily substances made in a laboratory to treat cancer. This therapy works with the immune system to increase your body’s natural ability to fight cancer. Immunotherapy helps your body recognize cancer cells as foreign substances and defend itself, the same way it does with a cold or the flu. At the same time, it spares healthy cells, unlike chemotherapy and radiation.
At Goshen Center for Cancer Care, we’ve pioneered ways to use the body’s immune system to find and destroy cancer cells. We are one of only a few renowned cancer centers in the country to offer treatment with the biological therapy called Interleukin-2 (IL-2). We use this therapy to treat liver cancer, metastatic melanoma (skin cancer that has spread to another part of the body, such as the liver) and kidney cancer.
If you’ve been diagnosed with liver cancer, our team wants to find the most effective treatment and help you find healing. To learn more about your options for immunotherapy for liver cancer in Goshen, IN, request an appointment or call (888) 492-4673 (HOPE) to talk with our oncology information specialists.
