Biological therapy

Biological therapy (sometimes called immunotherapy, biotherapy, or biological modifier response therapy) is a new family of agents that can be used in the treatment against cancer. Biological therapy uses the body's immune system, directly or indirectly, to combat cancer and to lessen the side effects that can be caused by other cancer treatments. The most common are interferons, interleukins, stimulant factors (G-CSF, erythropoietin) and the monoclonal antibodies.
