Potential of immuno-oncology therapies to selectively identify and attack the cancer cells which reduces the side effects is intended to take the global market for immuno-oncology to a new high in the coming future. Immuno-oncology therapies target the immune system of the body and not the tumor, by activating immune system to recognize the cancer cell and kill them by natural mechanism. These immuno-oncology therapies are becoming choice of therapy by oncologists as they provide long lasting effects such that the body can adapt to the changing behavior (resistance) of cancer cells toward immune system and improve the quality survival. Commercial immuno-oncology therapies are available against cancer types such as prostate cancer and melanoma and many other are under clinical studies. Some of the available immuno-oncology therapies include Zaltrap, Keytruda, Opdivo, Yervoy, Imlygic, Zyclara and others. Cancer treatment vaccines are currently being developed which can enhance the immune system’s response to tumor cell. Some of the FDA approved cancer treatment vaccines include Sipuleucel-T, bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) etc.

Global Immuno-oncology Market: Drivers and Restraints

Effective mechanism of immuno-oncology therapies for the patient with poor prognosis is expected to drive the growth of immuno-oncology market. The evidences from clinical trials reveals that the effects of immuno-oncology therapies on cancer cells would last for a longer time by preparing the immune system to fight against cancer cells even after the reduction in tumor cells. Additionally the side-effects associated with immuno-oncology therapies are limited as compared to many other cancer therapies, which creates a positive impact on the growth of immuno-oncology market. The restraining factors for the immuno-oncology therapies market are high cost of treatment, lack of awareness and slower pipeline development
