Harnessing The Immune System
How The Immune System Can Learn To Fight Cancer
Cancer is notoriously difficult to beat, but scientists are excited about the burgeoning field of immuno-oncology and teaching one's immune system to recognize and fight cancer.
The newest weapon in the fight against cancer might just be your own body. Through the field of immuno-oncology, scientists like Bob Hollingsworth, Pfizer’s VP of Cancer Vaccines, are working to develop tools that teach your immune system to identify and attack cancer cells.
Narrated by Dr. Freda C. Lewis-Hall, Chief Medical Officer of Pfizer, Cure Hunters is a video series that introduces the people, like Bob, who work to find treatments for the previously untreatable, day in and day out. Check out the video above and keep tuning in to Cure Hunters.
