Therapies can be designed that use the body's immune system to either directly or indirectly fight cancer, by repairing, stimulating, or enhancing the immune system's responses. These are called biological therapy, also known as biological response modifier therapy. Biological response modifiers (BRMs) are antibodies, cytokines and immune system substances that can be produced in the laboratory and can be used for cancer treatment. Some of the BRMs include interferons, interleukins, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, gene therapy, nonspecific immunomodulating agents and colony-stimulating factors. BRMs can be used alone or in combination with radiation and ...
