Immunotherapy works by harnessing the body’s own immune system and offers options for powerful, yet well-tolerated, therapies. Examples include monoclonal antibodies (rituximab, obinutuzumab, and others) that recognize the cancer, drugs that modulate the immune system, and others that take the brakes off of the immune system. These drugs are often combined with other types of therapy.
