About Lesson

In 2015, cancer posed a significant threat with over half a million projected deaths in the United States. Immune checkpoint therapy works by unleashing the power of the immune system to target and eliminate cancer cells. By removing the brakes on immune cells like T-cells and proteins like ctla-4, the therapy enables the immune system to operate at full strength without inhibitions, enhancing its ability to fight against cancer. This therapy does not directly attack cancer but rather strengthens the body’s defense mechanism to combat the disease.
