Immunotherapy treatments developed at Southampton do not only destroy visible cancer cells but also seek out and eradicate hidden cancers in other parts of the body. Potentially, they give our bodies a lifetime of immunity. Our patients who were previously given months to live are now cancer free.
Our clinical trials of drugs for advanced and terminal cancers, such as lung, skin (melanoma) and pancreatic cancers, and neuroblastoma, are showing remarkable results. Groundbreaking discoveries, such as vaccines, are moving out of the lab and reaching patients. As many as half our patients with difficult-to-treat cancers are showing significant improvements. And an amazing 20% are cancer free. We are making exciting inroads but we have more to learn. Immunotherapy has the potential to treat 100 different types of cancer.
Your immune system. Your support. The cure for cancer? You’re it
