Regenerative immunotherapy is a treatment that uses the power of our own immune system to fight malignancy. It can include targeted antibodies, cancer vaccines, or tumor infecting viruses to name a few. Some immunotherapy treatments use genetic engineering to enhance our immune cell’s cancer fighting properties and can be used in combination with more traditional treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. It’s FDA-approved as a first line treatment of multiple cancers and may also be effective in the management of malignancies that have been resistant to more traditional therapy. This podcast will address regenerative immunotherapy with Dr. Saad Kenderian, a hematologist at the Mayo Clinic. We’ll review the relationship between cancer and our immune system, how we can use our immune system to treat malignancy and which malignancies which have shown the best responses to regenerative immunotherapy.

 Specific topics discussed:

  • Relationship between cancer and our immune system
  • How we can use our body’s immune system to fight malignancy
  • Malignancies which can be currently be effectively treated with regenerative immunotherapy
  • Malignancies which have had the best responses to regenerative immunotherapy
  • Limitations in regenerative immunotherapy
