What are biological therapies?

Biological therapies are treatments that are gaining importance as we progress globally with the management of cancer. Understanding the biology of cancer has enabled us to understand the targets that go wrong in those cancers. We have successfully used many biological treatments that hit directly those targets in order to inhibit or switch-off the cancers. These biological therapies may be useful on their own or more commonly, combined with standard cancer treatment such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy.
