Immunotherapy, a new approach to cancer treatment, helps the immune system fight cancer. Checkpoint inhibitors, CAR-T therapy and other types of immunotherapy have led to long-term cancer-free remission for some people. But the new therapies don’t work for everyone or against all types of cancer. Scientists are learning how to make this type of treatment more effective for more people, making immunotherapy one of the hottest areas of cancer research.
