Triple-negative Breast Cancer | Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment and More

4) Immunotherapy for triple negative breast cancer

Immunotherapy is a treatment method that depends on the body’s own immune system. It is the usage of certain drugs that stimulate the immune cells, putting them on high alert so that they attack any tumor cells vigorously. This is particularly useful when the tumor has spread in the patient’s body, making surgery less useful.

As noted previously, hormonal treatments such as drugs which block estrogen and progesterone receptors do not work in triple negative breast cancer cases.
