For instance, (phase-III), developed by AstraZeneca for the treatment of first-line stage small cell lung malignancy. Immuno-oncology agents have shown promising results with improved survival rates and less toxicity. Such clinical trial results are expected to increase the introduction of novel therapeutic options in the coming years.

Increasing adoption of the combination therapies to treat cancer is further expected to increase demand for the immunotherapy. Combination therapies target multiple pathways within the tumor microenvironment that can potentially increase effectiveness of the immunotherapeutic treatment. Companies are mainly emphasizing development of the targeted treatments as novel regimens for the oncology disorder treatment.

The introduction of immunotherapy has aided the treatment options for the malignancies of breast, brain, bladder, lymphomas, and others. Although the usage of this therapy is minimal as compared to chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery. Immunotherapy is anticipated to emerge as the leading treatment strategy for the malignancies during the next few years. The alarming rise in oncology incidence rates has provoked global collaboration on oncology drugs and other therapies.
