Bladder cancer: immunotherapy
Biological therapy can be used to fight bladder cancer. This procedure stimulates the body’s immune system to try and fight off cancer cells. The therapy is passed through the urethra and directly in the body. It can use an immune-stimulating bacterium or an immune system protein. The bacterium irritates the bladder and can cause blood in the urine. The protein is a synthetic version of a protein produced by the body – interferon.
