Advances in cancer therapy or diagnosis are offered by immunotherapy, there are several approaches of immune therapy to counter cancer. Conventional cancer chemotherapy relied, killing the cancer cells by cytotoxic drugs. Due to toxic effects of the drugs on the patient and also the drug induced cancer with variety of adverse drug reactions. The cancer therapy was much faired. The quality of life of patients and high economic cost of drugs was very much discouraging for the patients. The new therapy in which immune system is applied no such side effects and new drug induced cancers that are not observed. The immune therapy can be described as utilizing owns immune system to counter the cancer. The immune therapy has several streams of treatments such as checkpoint inhibitors, adoptive cell transfer, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines for the treatment of cancer. In this article we are discussing chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy with other immune therapy.
