Immunotherapy and Stem Cell Therapy
During the past few decades, breakthroughs in cell and molecular biology have allowed significant advances in science and medicine. Modern cell-based products are often genetically engineered, such as immune cells for immunotherapies or stem cells for regenerative medicine.
Immunotherapies designed to elicit or amplify an immune response are classified as activation immunotherapies, while immunotherapies that reduce or suppress an immune response are classified as suppression immunotherapies. Suppression therapies are used to control autoimmune diseases or allergies, while activation immunotherapies are being developed to stimulate immune responses against diseases such as cancer.
