Drugs, radiation, and invasive surgery are the standard methods for treating cancer. But what if the human body could summon its own immunological defenses against the disease? This program explores the real-world applications of that idea in cutting-edge medicine. Viewers learn how newly emerging forms of immunotherapy, based on the natural ability of human antibodies to fight cancer, are already being used to save lives. British cancer researcher Dr. Awen Gallimore shares her insight into the science behind advanced immunology-based cancer treatments, while a compelling case study features a man who has beaten non-Hodgkins lymphoma with the help of a revolutionary drug called Ritumixab.
