Therapeutic Approach to Chordomas

Published on: 2017-05-02

Abstract

Chordomas are neoplasms that come from the notochord’s cellular remnants. Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment alternative to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Its goal is to use a patient’s own immune system to fight the tumor. The immune system can be stimulated by exposing synthetic immune molecules into a subject’s system. In this paper, we discuss the potential causes of chordomas, the pathophysiology of the disease, and potential ways to cure the disease using different immunotherapy techniques.
