Moreover, two main types of cancer therapies are chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Drugs such as Opdivo and keytruda affect the immune system for destroying the oncogenic cells. These drugs attack the cancer cells only in the body. For better efficacy and effective therapeutic actions products such as monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors, and cell therapies are widely adopted.
