As immunotherapy comprises various different types of medication to target antigens and ultimately treat cancer, administration methods can vary. These include:
Oral pills and tablets
Topical creams (usually reserved for early stages of skin cancer)
Intravenous (IV) infusions injected directly into a vein
Via specific transfer factor treatment
Intravesical injections introduced directly into the bladder
The exact dosage and frequency of treatment depends on the type of immunotherapy you receive, along with the type of cancer you have and how your body reacts to the chosen therapy. Immunotherapy treatments may be administered daily, weekly, or monthly, or they may be administered cyclically, meaning a period of treatment followed by a period of rest. Consult your doctor to discuss not only the types of immunotherapy but also the effects of immunotherapy to help determine the best course of action for your health and personal needs.
