Immunotherapy for cancer

An active specific immunotherapy (vaccinotherapy) is a strategy using tumor-associated antigens for including antitumor immune responses. The small structural distinctions of the xenogenic tumor-associated antigens from their human analogues render these antigens highly immunogenic and capable of including immune-mediated, antitumor responses in a patient not only at early, but also at advanced stages of disease, when tumor-derived immunosuppression is significant. Tumor-specfic immunotherapy is able to generate a selective and long-term antitumor effect. Such a therapy has no complications attributable to chemotherapy.
