Immunotherapy, also called biologic therapy, is a cancer treatment that enhances the body’s natural defenses to fight off cancer cells. In this therapy, the substance made by body or in laboratory to improve, restore, or target immune system function is used. Moreover, some immunotherapies that reduce or suppress the immune response are known as suppression immunotherapies. Cell-based therapies such as dendritic cells, includingmacrophages, natural killer cells, lymphocytes, cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) are used certain types of cancer. These cells effectively protect the body against cancer by aiming for abnormal antigens involved on the façade of the tumor cells. Furthermore, therapies such as cellular membrane from bacteria are used for medical purpose. Some of the others such as IL-7, IL-2, IL-12, synthetic cytosine phosphate-guanosine (CpG) oligodeoxynucleotides and glucans, and a variety of chemokines are involved in preclinical and clinical studies.

Increasing incidences of cancer and autoimmune diseases coupled with increasing demand for immunotherapy drugs is likely to support the market growth. Moreover, with increasing need for mAbs, the global immunotherapy drugs market is expected to witness significant growth during forecast period 2016-2024. The mAbs have a high attraction towards typical disease cells as well as areas that require treatment. Therefore, they can be used for therapies such as antibody-directed enzyme pro drug therapy and radio immunotherapy. Increasing use of these antibodies in the drug development processes is expected to drive the global immunotherapy drugs market growth during the forecast period.

Moreover, materialization of biosimilars is another factor driving growth of the global immunotherapy drugs market. Unlike generic drugs that have active pharmaceutical substance, biosimilars are almost identical to their creator biologic compounds. In fact, biosimilars are less expensive and assist in management of diseases and are more reachable for the patients than biologics. Furthermore, the sale of biosimilars among patients and hospitals is expected to increase significantly during the forecast period thereby supporting growth of the global immunotherapy drugs market.
