Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that helps your immune system fight cancer. The immune system helps your body fight infections and other diseases. It is made up of white blood cells and organs and tissues of the lymph system.

Immunotherapy is a type of biological ical therapy is a type of treatment that uses substances made from living. Cancer immunology is an interdisciplinary branch of biology that is concerned with understanding the role of the immune system in the progression and development of cancer; the most well known application is cancer immunotherapy, which utilises the immune system as a treatment for immunosurveillance and immunoediting are based on protection against.

Immunology is a relatively new science. Its origin is usually attributed to Edward Jenner (Fig. ), who discovered in that cowpox, or vaccinia, induced protection against human smallpox, an often fatal disease. Jenner called his procedure vaccination, and this term is still used to describe the inoculation of healthy individuals with weakened or attenuated strains of disease-causing Cited by: Abstract.

Fundamentally, red blood cells (RBC) transfusion constitutes the most commonly performed organ transplant in all of medicine. Numerous immunologic considerations must be undertaken when transfusing RBCs and platelets to patients to prevent alloimmunization, and ensure not only the feasibility of future transfusions, but also ensuring fetal safety of future.
