Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy

Given its diverse function and the fact that the immune system plays a role in virtually all human diseases, immunotherapy has become an important approach for the treatment of numerous diseases. Immunotherapy is defined as the treatment of disease by inducing, enhancing, or suppressing an immune response. This often involves targeting immunoreceptors with small molecule inhibitors/activators or immune system components, including antibodies or antibody fragments (Fab). Immunotherapies have shown efficacy in the treatment of cancer, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory diseases, and more.

Depending on the type of treatment, various side effects can arise as a result of using immunotherapy. Side effects include flu-like symptoms, muscle aches, fever, appetite loss, weakness, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. A rash may develop and some people bruise or bleed easily. These side effects are generally short-term, but patients may need to stay in hospital if they develop severe problems.
Nevertheless, state of the art immunotherapy technology is revolutionizing drug development and forever altering how we treat disease.

Our product range for immunotherapy for various types of cancer and allergy covers many purified proteins, molecules and soluble immunoreceptors involved in key immunosignaling pathways. Additionally, we offer a variety of assay kits that can be used to screen for inhibitors of protein-protein interaction, cDNA for expression studies as well as – neutralizing – antibodies.
