Özet

Lung cancer is a disease with very high morbidity and mortality rate. In spite of aggressive treatment modalities, the long-term survival is very low, and these treatments have many toxic adverse effects. Immunological therapies or briefly "immunotherapy" is a promising new therapeutic modality for lung cancer; it can be in the form of active immunization (cancer vaccines), passive immunization (adoptive cell therapy or antibody-based treatment) or immunostimulation.
