HealthTree University: Immunotherapy Basics Part 3 of 4

How can you improve your immune system? Patients can maintain a healthy diet and continue exercise, but other factors are in play as well. Prior therapies may affect the immune system, T cells can become exhausted and myeloma immunotherapies can be used to activate the immune system to attack myeloma cells. The immune system is complicated and myeloma researchers are continually learning more about it as myeloma immunotherapies are used more frequently in the clinic. 

We've assembled this course which features the top world experts on immunotherapy to teach you about latest advances in myeloma research. You can watch the entire course on HealthTree University.
