Cancer immunotherapy activates T cells and B cells that target specific tumor antigens1-3

The activated immune system is primed to recognize tumor antigens expressed by each patient's unique and frequently changing population of cancer cells1

Some activated T cells kill tumor cells directly or indirectly1

Some activated T cells activate B cells, which become antibody-producing plasma cells1

Cancer immunotherapy treatment is designed to support the immune system's ability to adapt its attack over time 1,3-6

Each patient's population of tumor cells mutates over
time, which may result in resistance to traditional
anticancer therapies1

When a tumor cell is killed, additional antigens are released, stimulating activation of new populations of
T cells and B cells that recognize tumor antigens1,2,4,5

This can result in an expanding cascade of immune cells that is able to recognize cancer cells bearing a variety of tumor antigens as the tumor mutates over time3-6

Immunotherapy for cancer stimulates immunologic memory, which may lead to a prolonged anti-tumor response1,7-8

Some activated immune cells become
memory cells, which remain primed to stimulate an anticancer immune
response when tumor cells bearing
target antigens are encountered within
the body1,7,8
